In our world of rapid change, we try to comprehend reality through order. We provide structure and valuations to understand things individually and mutually. For example, a newly discovered place refers to a personal memory. Many 'strange' places together thus become familiar with our cultural experience.
But what if, due to advancing technology, many things happen faster than we can keep up with? Think of travelling, of disorientation, of culture shock. We move from place to place at a quick rate. The familiar environment is precarious, and if it is out of the picture, we can get upset. Cultural differences evoke alienation, just as urbanization and damage to nature can.
The stillness of time, in the guises of natural phenomena or artifacts, provides cryptic intuitive images. Our inner dialogue around a slowly changing nature or culture creates a haunting mind. Space and time are given an experience of merciless continuity here.
In the online exhibition Time Zones, works by some of the artists of the gallery have been selected that stand out because of their unique structure or abstraction, ordered or rather free, with many fascinations in terms of color and light. Spontaneously or in due time, one will probably find a connection with his own preferences.
