Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery is showing a trio of exhibitions that examine art beyond the second dimension exploring the esoteric, metaphysical, spiritual and unknown.
Windows to the Sacred: An Exploration of the Esoteric looks beyond everyday human experiences into the wider universe probing into man’s quest for hidden knowledge through alternative spiritual practices and the possibilities therein.
Jo Scicluna’s Where We Begin focuses her lens on the power of photography to transport viewers and to provoke thoughts of what lies outside the frame. Her evocative peninsula seascapes bend expectations as she grapple to find her own place in a new landscape.
Beyond Belief: Works from the Permanent Collection showcases prints drawings and paintings specifically selected to complement Windows to the Sacred. Artists and works chosen provide intriguing insights into the esoteric, surreal and spiritual in ways that inspire or elicit reaction.
See all three exhibitions from Friday 15 May to Sunday 12 July
