"still point" a solo exhibition by Fran Saunders 20 July - 1 August, 2015

 ‘…at the still point there the dance is’ – T.S. Eliot

Opening talk by Carol Brown, Durban based art curator, museum consultant, and writer

I’m interested in changes wrought in the human psyche through discipline and sometimes pain, and the moments of grace which transcend apparent limitations. The alchemical colours and limited palette enable this focus by evoking the three main stages in alchemy: nigredo (blackening - burning off the dross), albedo (whitening - purification by fire), and rubedo (reddening - as the spirit is again made flesh.)
I however do not want to enclose these works in a single discourse but allow them to be  open to multiple interpretations.

Useful keys:
forging point
turning point
melting point
firing point
tipping point
vanishing point

Fran Saunders

The exhibition ends on Saturday, 1 August at 2p.m.
