MUTED BEAUTY

 ELAINE BATTON

4-26 AUGUST 

“Muted Beauty”  considerations of beauty during 2020 and 2021 as we experienced Coronavirus impacts, lockdowns and isolation.

The works provide a metaphor for how beauty continues. Beauty still existed around us, but was unable to resonate loudly, it was still there albeit in a quieter, gentler way, and at times faded and declining as our immediate world seemed smaller, narrower, receding to the background against a tide of change, challenges and impacts.

Yet it will continue, gradually the whisper will have a louder voice, its protest against our loneliness a voice that echoes more silently in these times. The steadfast presence allows for comfort as it accompanies our journey.
