The World's Turning

Aitken's work reflects the balance of Yin and Yang in a commemoration of family members, friends and associates "who sleep before us". Cashian explores momentum, stasis, mechanisms and patterns inspired by new scuptures of Stephen Vince, while Andreyev's transcendent sonic poetry moves in prismatic micro-variations. Bjarnason draws inspiration from and pays tribute to New York School painters Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock.
