Group Exhibition: Time - Art Collector

William Breen

The river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere, and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past, nor the shadow of the future. – Hermann Hesse
Our comprehension of time occurs in a slippage somewhere between the present and passing moment. Always moving forward, time perhaps is best felt when we are at our most still, when the moment is allowed to unfold in slow, palpable units before us. The opportunity to witness a momentary event with clarity, to observe and hold onto something of its essence, be that the changing quality of light or the fleeting movement of a cloud, is an almost sublime encounter. It is within this flow of duration and change that the truly ambiguous nature of time reveals itself. The intersection of the event and its recollection constitutes the seed of artistic enquiry.
