ARCANA EXHIBITION | 3 – 8 October 2019 at Marfa Gallery

Home / News / ARCANA EXHIBITION | 3 – 8 October 2019 at Marfa Gallery


Exhibition runs: 3 – 8 Oct 2019
Opening Night: Fri 4 Oct, 6-9pm
Location: Marfa Gallery

Lucy Lucy, Rachael Edwards and Katherine Gailer weave together a visual narrative in which the power of the Feminine expands, nurtures, and liberates the intuitive self.  

This exhibition brings together works created during their residency at Q Bank in Queenstown, Tasmania. It provides a visual record of their time spent in quiet reflection and inward contemplation, during the slowest and most dormant months of the year.

The word Arcana meaning secrets comes  from the Latin, Arcanus which refers to mysterious or specialised knowledge, language, or information accessible or possessed only by few or chosen people.

Collectively the artists create a portal into the unknown, inviting us on an enchanted journey, where we encounter themes of nature, healing, magic, and metaphysics.

In conversation with ‘Magical Realism’, the artists base their concepts on contemporary reality, translating them into visual signifiers that tell stories. Each artist brings a unique and enriching perspective, formed by different ways of knowing, a discovery of three intimate landscapes.

This body of work conveys that which cannot be described in words, reclaiming the connection between our spirit and the cycles of nature. A remembering of unauthorised knowledge, rooting us in something larger than ourselves.
