GEOFFREY DE GROEN - in to the distance

"Do not despair, one of the thieves was saved. Do not presume, one of the thieves was damned. " Samuel Beckett.

In that symbiotic relationship between an artist and his viewer nothing can be taken for granted. Indeed, without that relationship there is no art. Nor is there any art if either party rests content with formulas, with second-hand experience or with seduction. ... read more

Roger Ackling [2006]

12 September 2006
Annandale Galleries

When one first encounters the work of ROGER ACKLING the response is inevitably puzzling. Bits of wood with burned images on white walls. The label lists "sunlight on wood" as the medium. Sunlight on wood? Now the curiosity is aroused. The geometric burn marks are actually thousands of individual burn marks made by directing the suns rays through a magnifying glass. Ackling's relationship with the open air begins with finding his driftwood supports on long walks usually by the sea near his home in Norfolk. ... read more
