The sacred geometry in our lives
'Harmonia' will show at the Standard Bank gallery
Posted: Apr 09 2018
Opening this month at the Standard Bank gallery, artist and lecturer Gordon Froud’s new body of work seeks to investigate the various aspects of ‘sacred geometry’ in the world around us.
Titled Harmonia: Sacred Geometry, the pattern of existence, the exhibition makes use of Froud’s well-known sculptural works as well as new drawings, prints, digital imagery, and animation. Taking inspiration from everyday landscapes, cityscapes, and the human form, Froud sheds light on the extent to which geometry is inherent in both our corporeal existence and the patterns of the universe.
The artist’s work draws on elements of sacred geometry across a multitude of belief systems, including those from ancient Egypt, the Maya, Judeo-Christianity and Islam, to contemporary belief in aliens.
Harmonia: Sacred Geometry, the pattern of existence opens to the public on Friday 13 April and will run until 15 June 2018. The Standard Bank gallery will be open Mondays to Fridays from 8:00am to 4:30pm, and Saturdays from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Entrance to the exhibition is free, and walkabouts will be held during the exhibition period.
