2018 Parkin Drawing Finalist, Morag Stokes (Scotland), manipulates Chinese ink and graphite on yupo paper to harness the natural forces of gravity, friction, suction and temperature.

Primitive life forms, suggestive of vibrations, resonate bands and passages into distant places. The works are a Primordial Soup of creation myths - cultural, traditional and religious accounts which describe the earliest beginnings of the present world such as the cosmic egg and earth diving bird/amphibian, the contemplation of chaos into order and the metamorphosis of nascent forms through subterranean worlds, amongst many others.

According to Celtic primordial myth, creation began as a great strain of Melody which moved across endless waters. It was the breath of the primordial God that sang Creation into existence. To the Celts, it was known as the Oran Mór and to this day it is said to be woven through the very fabric of life.

Join Morag at Potocki Paterson Art Gallery for the opening night on Wednesday 12th of September, from 5:30pm.
