Quotes

"Sian Davey's work stood out for me on each pass through the submissions. Though her subject is intensely personal, the photographs, to me, transcend that specificity and tell a more universal narrative about love, childhood, and family that any viewer could understand. Davey's work has a rawness, a vulnerability that I responded to profoundly, and I appreciated the understatedness of her approach. In less capable hands, a similar project could have felt emotionally manipulative or even exploitative, but there is none of that here. Deeply felt without being sentimental, the work is at once tender and beautifully seen."
...Kathleen Soriano, Director of Exhibitions says, "While particular segments of Kiefer’s oeuvre have been shown at galleries in this country at intervals over recent decades, never before has a comprehensive overview taken place in spaces befitting the monumental character of many of his pieces. This is an unprecedented opportunity to consider and re-evaluate the trajectory of Kiefer’s practice and the importance of his innovations and contributions to the history of art, whilst celebrating one of our own Honorary Royal Academicians."
..."Maman," the spindly creatures and their egg sacs, made from stainless steal, marble and bronze, stood as tributes to Bourgeois' mother, Josephine. " The Spider is an ode to my mother . She was my best friend. Like a spider, my mother was a weaver... spiders are helpful and protective, just like my mother."
"Certain things just happen to you, and you either embrace it or you don't" Pilas said
