Exploring relationships between colour, light and space.
Karen Sewell's artworks investigate connections between abstraction and spiritual experience. The floating sculpture Luminary at the Cathedral accompanies the exhibition at Atelier.
Capturing What Cannot Be Captured at ATELIER Studio|Gallery and the extended presentation of Luminary showing at the Cathedral explore relationships between form, colour, light, space and sound.
The work seeks to evoke the unfathomable mystery and beauty of cosmic phenomena, and act as a potential threshold into the terrain of the numinous. The exhibition includes the use of spherical and circular forms in sculptural and painted works that reflect artist Karen Sewell’s interest in celestial bodies and sacred geometries. Here, the original use of the term ‘luminary’ references natural light-giving bodies, cosmic or celestial. A luminary can also be a person who inspires or influences others, especially one prominent in a particular sphere.
