Metro sponsor Sacred Geometries Exhibition at Anise Gallery

13 March 2017
 
Metro is delighted to be sponsoring Sacred Geometries, a photography exhibition to mark the 5th anniversary of Anise Gallery. Drawing its inspiration from trends in contemporary photography and the diverse writings of Plato, author Robert Lawlor and architectural historian Peg Rawes the exhibition is based on themes found in the sacred geometries.

Metro has produced C Type prints for the photography exhibition which features images by Dennis Gilbert, Doublespace, Fernando Guerra, Hélène Binet, Hufton and Crow, Jim Stephenson and John MacLean, alongside film contributions from Paul Raftery and Dan Lowe. Anise Gallery hope to inspire and instigate a conversation surrounding Sacred Geometries.

Traversing through a city the aesthetics of geometry are unavoidable, whether in a grand scale such as skyscraper architecture, or the tiny backs of ladybirds, intricate design can be located in both complex, constructed design patterns and in the minute details in nature.  

Sacred geometries have value beyond that of the aesthetic, and are viewed as the coming together of mathematics, nature and spirituality, due to their use in religious iconography. Since ancient Egypt, where geometrics were viewed as a visual manifestation of law and order and later in ancient Greece where they had sacred and scientific properties in helping to solve earthly mysteries.

“Geometric diagrams can be contemplated as still moments revealing a continuous, timeless, universal action generally hidden from our sensory perception”– Robert Lawlor.
