According to Ian Buchanan in a recent text, there is a move in the current mode of appreciation of art toward the small screen of mobiles and other electronic devices, which provide a somehow perfect and self-reflective antidote for boredom.
Von Brasch and Purdue propose their visuals - in the face of the ‘new’, the fleeting mass commodity - as possible anchors for absorption, contemplation and non-expectation in the anonymity of the gallery.
Both artists contextualise their works with aspects of ancient and modern painting, symbolism and alchemical influences, so as to weave historical strands dealing with a similar interest in the dynamics of contemporary Becoming.
