When I start to paint, time as I know it outside of my studio ceases to exist. My studio is my safe home and in its stillness the ‘truths’, the ‘memories’, the essence of what already exists within, are stirred up. T.S.Elliot said “At the still point of the turning world... at the still point, there the dance is”. I am learning to tune and retune myself to the rhythm of this dance. At times it can take courage to slow down and be still when the world appears to be overtaking and speeding by. I return to painting day after day because I want to be there to record the moments when truth breaks through. Joy Wolfenden Brown. 2012
