“There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot.” John Cage (Silence, 1961).
For John Cage the so called silence in between musical notes was as important as the notes themselves, as this allowed incidental sounds to infiltrate his compositions. This exhibition features two artists whose work explores the in between spaces and the effect of light and transparency through layers and tonal modulations. The work fluctuates between order and the incidental, and the layers create a sense of movement, a shifting allure, in contrast to the use of formal structural devices, such as letterpress, geometric lines and grids, and the slow, precise nature of the printmaking process. As a result, these subtle prints are full of latent energy.
