Gallery: Gallery VIII


Gallery VIII

Bob and Roberta Smith RA’s four-year-old son inspired the painting, My Son Changed My Art, while also providing the catalyst for Gallery VIII, which explores the arts and their relationship with science, mathematics, logic and even God. Smith wanted to “look at the outer limits of our imaginations,” and what better way to do that than to take cosmology as an overarching theme? From Haroon Mirza’s centrally placed work Spica and Other Stars which employs light to create a sense of never-ending energy, to Ricca Kawai’s hypnotic Portal A and Portal Ω, all of the works here try to make sense of the universe and the universal.
