TEMPORARY KNOWLEDGE

CATALOGUE

On display at Window Gallery, Canary Wharf, 14 November 2018 - 4 January 2019

Temporary Knowledge (or, all is knowledge is temporary) is a collection of work which is a reflection on how dogmatic ideas can suddenly become obsolete. Out dated either due to an idea expanding from its former truth or being exposed as false, such as the world being flat.

This series is a collection of oil paintings depicting imaginative atmospheres within an outline of a glass cloche. Regardless of beliefs, knowledge has the capability of opening up to other understandings giving a sense of freedom to the mind. The glass cloche symbolises the study science has towards life and the atmosphere symbolises the freedom knowledge gives.
