Venue: The Farm Pub, Bristol, UK
This collection of works focuses on the pursuit of Universal Truths.
The principle works; We are the Cosmos, Rainbow Ladder, and Refraction; refer directly the truth of light, balance and yoga. Despite human disagreement, there are truths in this Universe and they are true whether we believe them or not.
Light is the great trickster. We see it as white while it carries the full spectrum. This illusion and light’s ability to work as both particle and wave define us, our existence and all matter.
Balance is always present whether we are aware of it or not. We might think we are separate from the natural world, yet it is intrinsic to our humanity and animal nature.
Yoga means unity. We are all unified by the truths of what we are. We are unified in the cycle of life, death and rebirth.
The other works involved in this show are all related to the process of arriving at these truths.
