In Roger Murray’s latest series Inflection Point elemental forces take sculptural form. Rendered in wood – with elements of brass, steel, and lacquer woven into their structure – the intricate forms transmute materials of the natural world into symbols of sublime interconnectedness. Beginning as simple geometries, the sculptures grow into complex configurations which intersect, entwine, and oscillate together, meditating on the unseen forces that hold our world together and pull it apart.
References to division and transformation are evident in both the patterns and shapes of these works, recalling processes of mitosis and metamorphosis which have both scientific and religious connotations. The result is a balancing act between enlightenment and spirituality; a convergence between biology, physics, ritual, and belief that gives rise to an inflection point of change.
Opening event: Wednesday 5 October, 5 – 7pm.
