FineArt Collection >>> When Time Stands Still
Time stands still best in moments that look suspiciously like ordinary life. Brian Andreas
"We spend most of our lives in doing, striving, planning and reacting. We hardly ever stop and observe the mind directly to see what it is up to. It takes a while for us to start looking at our mind; to get comfortable with the richness of allowing ourselves to just be with our own mind. Meditation is the opposite of doing. It is non-doing. This process produces insights, creativity and awareness. This process of non-doing unchains us, opening up new directions for us through the moments we call life." Swami Vishvas
When time stands still, everything around you seems to stop. This sensation of frozen time often arises as a byproduct of awe, that rare but overwhelming feeling of reverence we experience when witnessing something wondrous. Awe-inspiring scenes themselves do not need to be grand. Moments in everyday life can be just as effective into pulling a person into the awe experience. And these wondrous moments don’t need to occur when one is in a state of solitude, awe can be experienced anytime by interacting in new ways with the people and places around you each day to identify the moments that truly inspire awe in you.
This collection is a result of the Artists persistent scouring of the urban landscape for the uniquely unseen; compelling moments of light, texture and form; and, many times, the decaying elements in the constructed environment. In short, these artworks are an attempt to extract and synthesise the less seen, yet strangely elegant, fragments of the urban landscape in order to reconstruct an urban aesthetic.

Print Permanence Ratings# for our prints displayed framed under glass under ideal conditions is rated at >250+ years.
# Print Permanence Ratings* are based on accelerated testing of prints on speciality media. It is defined as the number of years before noticeable fading and/or changes in colour balance occur for prints displayed framed under glass under ideal conditions. Actual print stability will vary according to media, printed image, display conditions, light intensity and atmospheric conditions. These ratings do not measure media deterioration, such as yellowing, cracking, etc.
The Artist does not guarantee the longevity of prints. For maximum print life, the Artist recommends that display all prints framed under glass to protect the prints from atmospheric contaminants like humidity, cigarette smoke, and high levels of ozone. For proper storage, the prints be stored in a photo album in acid free, archival sleeves or a museum storage box. And the prints should be kept out of direct sunlight. By taking these steps to protect prints, you can preserve these prints for many years.
