'Rocks are verbs, writes Marcia Bjornerud in ‘Timefulness’, her account of geology’s study of earth’s planetary history. By offering visible evidence of processes — eruption, accretion, growth — rocks make time legible. Like Bjornerud, Helga Groves reads time’s legibility in the surfaces and markings of stone, transforming them into abstract images and sculptural forms...' Ingrid Periz, Slow Moving Structures, Helga Groves exhibition essay 2018.

Bateson's new body of work is dark but not depressing. Rather, it is soothing and the artist says the repetition of his painterly process is both meditative and healing. An experience which is shared by this viewer.

'Daniel Noonan’s abstractions are sophisticated balancing acts of colour and composition, in which elusive forms, figures and text emerge and dissolve. Central to Noonan’s painting approach is challenging the boundaries of the picture plane.' Excerpt Sutton Gallery website.
