Created for 'Modern Abstractions Hide Ancient Realities' solo show exhibition at the MacLaurin Art Gallery, Ayr, 30th July - 16th October 2022. This exhibition explored religious consciousness, what it means to be ‘sacred’ and how the word ‘religion’ can be misinterpreted. Inspired by the writings of archeologist André Parrot, scholars Carlin A Barton and Daniel Boyarin.
Two vessels standing adjacent to one another are reminiscent of standing columns, the entrance to an unnamed space, an archway to another place. In this piece the artist was investigating the relationship between two figures and directs the viewer’s attention to the transient spaces or ‘passing places’.
