Sacred Geometries

Inspired by trends in contemporary photography, Anise Gallery is marking its fifth birthday with an exhibition of photography and film based on the imagery of the sacred geometries.

Aesthetic geometry is ubiquitous, even moreso in architectural developments. While the subject focus in the exhibition is of architecture, ‘Sacred Geometries’ focuses on the geometries found in the image created by the photographer above those which may appear in the work of the architect.
Now in the twenty-first century, we find ourselves in a world inundated with images, through social media, the press, search engines and the like; how are the world’s most sophisticated geometries best captured? Evidently, sacred geometries have value beyond that of the aesthetic, and are viewed as the coming together of mathematics, nature and spirituality, due to their use in religious iconography.

The attraction to photography has always been its ability to depict its subject matter true-to-life; yet in a world of post-production and filters, aesthetic manipulation and embellishment are now prevalent in contemporary art, and ‘Sacred Geometries’ looks at how the two might come together, here in the polarising environments of nature and the metropolis.

Through the curation of an exhibition of film from Paul Raftery and Dan Lowe, and photography by Dennis Gilbert, Doublespace, Fernando Guerra, Hélène Binet, Hufton and Crow, Jim Stephenson and John MacLean, Anise Gallery hope to inspire and instigate a conversation surrounding Sacred Geometries. In collaboration with Miniclick an evening of short talks and discussion will take place on 6 April 2017.

"Geometric diagrams can be contemplated as still moments revealing a continuous, timeless, universal action generally hidden from our sensory perception"

About the gallery

Anise GallerySince opening in March 2012, Anise Gallery has focussed on promoting art and architecture as a joint artistic discipline. Through a programme of curated exhibitions Anise Gallery has quickly made a name for itself within the local art and architecture community. The work displayed in the gallery often extends to practices associated to architecture such as illustration and photography. Working closely, both in the sense of shared space and interest, with architectural illustrators AVR London, the gallery exhibits chosen artists that capture architecture through a variety of artistic forms.

The gallery is located in a former spice warehouse along historical Shad Thames. Although refurbished, the directors Jacquelyn and Joseph have ensured that many of the original features are retained and revealed. The industrial heritage of the building is very much evident to visitors, and provides an appropriate backdrop to the artwork.

Opening Times

During Exhibitions Only Tues – Thurs & Sat: 11am – 5pm. Fridays by appointment. Closed Bank Holidays
