A photography show by Odette England at Light House gallery in Wolverhampton (27th August – 22nd October 2010)…

“Fresh from its debut in New York, Odette England’s show marks a study of geography, belief systems and the natural flows of nature. The significance of the phrase ‘as above, so below‘ is that it is one which indigenous cultures live by: a belief that the heavens and the earth are the foundation of all creatures, including themselves. Land and sky are more than just geographical icons; they are mirrors in which they see themselves reflected.”

The new work was made in 2009 at Fowler’s Gap Arid Research Station in the Australian desert, and overlays cloud studies with photographs of earth textures. For those interested in the theory / art history of cloud studies, my ‘overlay’ ejournal had a 2009 edition on ‘Cloud Studies’.
