I am intrigued by the slippage where science and spirituality touch: those points of similarity and difference where theories rub up against each other and cause a bit of friction. The beautifully broad scope of the Regions of the Heavens exhibition presents me with an opportunity to focus my attention there.

Regions of the Heavens I looks at the Heavens as place of profound mystery and reverence with the ancient symbol for air – and heaven – floating across the surface. The symbolic power of the four elements has long been part of our thinking and this enduring obsession is to do with their intrinsic connection to the cycle of life and death. Historically, exposure to the four elements represents the only ways in which the dead can be disposed of, and through this exposure nourish and support new life. Interestingly these symbols are largely circular.
