could you describe your style as a good friend of yours might?we have all come from a place of the unborn and we are all here for a short period of time. we have to cross a threshold of water and light to arrive and to leave. we will ultimately all go back to this eternal non-spatial, non-temporal world of potentiality. a lot of my work deals with questions like this, of giving birth, death and human transition.

They form part of the first exhibition of Mr Viola’s work in London in six years. Their aqueous beauty makes them the undoubted star of it. Stare at them as you may (and you will), and you will be unable to work out if these people are alive or even breathing. Their upturned faces are stuck in a state of perennial epiphany, gently smiling or lost in some internal dialogue. Their clothes flutter, their hair eddies to and fro. Occasionally a bubble escapes their lips. They seem alive but frozen, recalling the stasis of dreams in which time seems suspended.

Viola has always been cautious about media, such as television, that works to disrupt, rather than integrate, the sensory intelligence of the body. He places primacy on the integrated intuitive body, weakening the eye-brain connection by playing with, distorting, or slowing down literal or concrete images, allowing the conceptual mind and the perceptual body to work in concert. Viola has always worked with visual technology in a haptic manner (through sense of touch), conforming the technology to uncover deeper layers of perception.
