Gematria – an Exhibition

“Gematria is an Assyro-Babylonian system of numerology later adopted by Jews that assigns numerical value to a word or phrase in the belief that words or phrases with identical numerical values bear some relation to each other”

I am participating in “Gematria”, an exhibition curated by Gloria Strzelecki, opens at Adelaide Central Gallery, Glenside Cultural Precinct, 7 Mulberry Road, Glenside on June 17th.

Gloria has assigned 26 artists each a letter of the alphabet and asked us to make an Artwork in response to that letter. The works will be accompanied by a very brief statement or poem written by the artist.

The exhibition will be opened by John Neylon, author, curator and Art critic, at 6pm on the 17th June. It continues until 11th July.

Some of the works may be seen here.
