As pilgrims of a kind, calligrapher Georgia Angelopoulos and artist Miles Lowry draw from the visual and literary traditions of their respective heritage. Their individual travels have allowed them to experience first-hand the important artifacts of historic poets, artists and scribes. This exhibition reunites their collaboration, first explored in 2011. By pulling words into paintings and paintings into script the two artists work on the same ground deciphering a mysterious balance of meaning and gesture. Together, their ‘marks of devotion’ connect to the roots and rituals of language, crafted using fine linen, gold, cast fibre, and mineral pigments.

“Protection, service and ritual reflect in a look that is at once
newly empowered and strangely innocent. The soft white doves are easily tamed. Innocent of their role as symbols they submit and become the offerings, suggesting a delicate balance of power and compassion.”
