'Life Is Not The Same Thing As Talking' (A quote from Adam Phillips).

In EC's words:
"The first group of works showing in the woods were made in my studio just off a noisy main road in London and are about ‘Language' and so may not at first appear directly related to the experience of the woods. However, forests or woods as well underground spaces (the river Mogul runs below ground here) have associations with and are symbolic of the unconscious.
"This woodland is somewhere I often spend time in sitting in silence. On my way out I emerge in to a space where spoken language is of great importance again.
"And so it is that people want words when they ask of an (abstract) painting, ‘What is that about?'.
"I chose the title Life Is Not The Same Thing As Talking because painting is ‘life' – it is qualitative."
