The museum gallery space has long appealed as a place of contemplation. Whether we call this experience spiritual or not, art opens us up to ideas we have previously not thought about.

Art, like many other things, requires commitment for value to be realised. Art invites thoughtful consideration by the viewer. Art asks the viewer to relax and suspend their typical concerns; to think and to dream.

This is an exhibition about inward reflection, space for oneself, beauty, quietude, consideration, looking and looking again.
