All creative art is magic, is evocation of the unseen in forms persuasive, enlightening, familiar and surprising…
In its capacity to take viewers into the realm of possibility whilst remaining firmly grounded in the present, every work of art can be considered an evocation. In this sense, the reading of a work is not confined to what is seen and extends to what is experienced. As such, through art, imagery and objects can be understood as a mediation between an earthly physical state and a spiritual dimension. It is not the suggestion of this exhibition that the selected artists are experts in or even practice any specific spiritual modalities, but rather to point to readings of their works that are associated with the presence of invisible realities associated with transcendence, transformation, manifestation and dissolution.
