Exhibition - Michael McGlennon: "Oscillutions"

Dec 9, 2013 to Dec 20, 2013

Visual arts student Michael McGlennon's exhibition Oscillutions features a selection of prints and drawings inventing and exploring the life cycle of an imaginary trans-terrestrial world.

The image-based narratives of the show focus on the central themes of evolution and a sense of ecological connectivity.

The life cycle of this imagined world is governed by 'Luna', the anthropomorphic moon god of music. Flora and fauna transform into a crystalline state during the dark periods of the lunar phase. This transformation (which McGlennon describes with the invented word "oscillution") and the symbiotic relationship between the life forms and their moon are depicted in screen prints and drawings with pen and marker.
