Suspension of time, space and physical mass and the recording of âfrozen moments'
Suspense brings together for the first time the work of four distinguished artists with international reputations, Simon Finn, Dean Randazzo, Ruth Simons and Jayne Wilton. For Finn and Randazzo this will be the UK première of their work.
The suspension of time, space and physical mass and the recording of âfrozen moments' are recurrent themes in the work of all these artists. Each, in their own way, explores and records matter in motion and changing material states, in media which include drawing, sculpture, photography and animation.
Despite the apparent diversity of their practices, George Mogg, curator of Suspense and the Beldam Gallery at Brunel University, saw connections in the work of these artists; how they observe and record the chaos, patterns and randomness of natural, untamable forces and use their art to express and try to make sense of the complex and baffling. What she has put together is a show of contrasts and connections, the macro and the micro, cutting-edge technology alongside traditional art processes, where meticulous craftsmanship meets reckless or organic action to retell a story of transformation and disruption. Despite these polarities, Suspense promises to be an exhibition of remarkable coherence.
