• Alex Laurie and Sophia Laurie

While Alex's work lingers in the coincidence of pattern and action within nature, behaviours such as orbit, radiation, bifurcation, slipping into the demotic, present in games, present in the kitchen, Sophia's wax pictures exist at the other end of the sign-seeking cycle, where inanimate subjects lack any coincidence as they appear petrified, killed, mimesis delivering yearned-for stasis.

Expressing the relationship between a part and a whole.


The god who served as messenger. Also the god of commerce, thievery, eloquence, and science, identified with the Greek god Hermes.

The planet nearest the sun.
