Freya Purdue and Marius von Brasch work both from their studios on the island. They shared Open Studios in 2017 and joined for a bigger 2 person show at APT Gallery London.

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.'

For this show we currently produce a catalogue with an introduction written by artist and writer Ella Clocksin.
We will talk about the works and the leading idea behind on Saturday 23 March 2pm, Ella will moderate this talk.
