Invoking the supernatural powers of colour, light, pattern, and form, they seek messages in the metaphysical properties of the world around us. Fusing art and science, physics and intuition, they step closer to capturing the sublime and untouchable forces which drive and shape our phenomenal universe.
Presenting work across sculpture, photography, print and film, META-MATTER unites seven unique artists whose work casts new light on the sublime and intangible forces which galvanise our experience of the world around us. Through their eyes we consider how the untouchable forces of light and colour impact on our intellectual and emotional awareness. We question our relationships with the real and synthesised sensations of our constructed images and environments. We encounter the metaphysical in dynamic matter of organic objects and geometric forms, and we meditate on the hypnotic colours, patterns and textures which infuse and animate the earth and sky around us.
As the boundaries of our visual planes expand, their work captures the invisible currents of our brave new universe wherein technology and sensory experience challenge and explode our intellectual and unconscious landscape, revealing new artistic pathways through which we can reconnect with the world, and each other.
