Airscape represents freedom and liberty. In a world where we are ruled by screens and social media, Airscape reminds us to breathe.
Inspired by images and objects that surround our every day lives, Airscape examines the small details and brings them into sharp focus. In the same way meditation clears your mind, these works will force you to reflect.
Opening reception: Saturday 8 December 2018.
