    Gravity is a fundamental force in our existence, yet it's very essence remains a mystery.

    In this body of work, accomplished multidisciplinary artists Edzy Edzed & Pierre Leichner explore the force of gravity artistically. This mixed media presentation aims to engage viewers visually & physically with works that are imaginative representations of gravitational waves made using gravitational force directly. Discover bold & dizzying works such as painted doors, concave & convex mixed media works, & gouged wooden paintings.

    Watch the virtual opening to learn more about the artists' inspirations & practices.
