Geometricks II by Lyndal Hargrave

An exhibition of new paintings and wall based sculptures Geometricks II by Lyndal Hargrave will be exhibited at the Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland from May 15, 2015.

Geometry is at the heart of her investigations, from the patterns of spider webs to the movement of the planets. The exhibition also explores and exploits 3 D illusion and the eternal quest of the artist to breath life into a two dimensional surface.
