Helene Schjerfbeck Her work starts with a dazzlingly skilled, somewhat melancholic version of late-19th-century academic realism…it ends with distilled, nearly abstract images in which pure paint and cryptic description are held in perfect balance.(Roberta Smith, New York Times, November 27th 1992) Biography
John Cox Workshop 5 axis router An increase in demand for large 3D objects and sculptures was the driving force behind the acquisition of a 5 axis router. The table size is 3 metres long, 1.5 metres wide and 900mm deep. Working from scanned/digital images, an operator scales up the image, splits/divides the model into pieces to fit the machine’s table size, plots the cutting paths and parameters and then sends the file to the router. The router then cuts the sculpture out of polystyrene, polyurethane, MDF or soft timber.

A study of 8 to 11-year-olds found that, those who had extra-curricular music classes, developed higher verbal IQ, and visual abilities, in comparison to those with no musical training (Forgeard et al., 2008). This shows the benefits of learning an instrument are not purely musical, but extend into cognition and visual perception. The effects of music on cognition extend even to neurological wiring.
