An exhibition of 32 drawings and paintings produced between 2011 and 2018.
In quantum mechanics, light photons can be explained as behaving both as a wave and as a particle. This exhibition in the main gallery features new and existing paintings and drawings which are based around this non-geometric structural framework. The work is produced through observation and the intuitive creative process, and consists of objective, subjective and phenomenological studies of the sea, water, landscape, figure, and organic abstraction.
The work engages with concepts of chaos, complexity, tranquillity, perception, magic, shamanism and metaphor.
