Elements of Euclid

Karyn Taylor

25 September to 14 October 2018

Kāryn Taylor uses fundamental geometric figures to investigate our physical and metaphysical questions of existence. She looks at the properties of space and time, and how one might bring structure, or order to, non-logical ideas from the depths of our quantum reality. In this new body of work, ‘Elements of Euclid', Taylor is pushing colour more than ever before as she explores wave-particle duality, the concept in quantum mechanics that every particle or quantic entity may be partly described in terms not only of particles, but also of waves. The differing wavelengths that determine each colour, along with the solidity of the art object itself, recall these ideas in quantum physics.  She is working with colour as an expression of light as she attempts to solidify it.
