Renee Bevan

"I've been trying to capture things lately. Preserve, bury things; capture existence. There are many things that exist in the world that cannot be seen, felt, heard, touched. I want to make honest work. Work that requires an element of faith. Transient, fleeting, the ephemeral. In the shadow of its presence. Everything that will bring the work to life will cause it to fall apart. What are the lives within these objects? What lies beneath? A thought out loud. My thoughts around your neck. Out of my mind. I think I can string together some thoughts. Why I'm only touching the surface. A residue of thought. How can something mean so much to one and so little to another. Its what's deep down inside that really counts."
