‘Me­ta­tron’s Cube’ at Sig­nal

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

THE ex­hi­bi­tion ‘Me­ta­tron’s Cube’ by Mary Con­roy will be on at Sig­nal Arts Cen­tre in Bray from Mon­day, July 22 un­til Sun­day, Au­gust 4.

This body of work is a part of Con­roy’s con­tin­u­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the Bio­philia hy­poth­e­sis which sug­gests that we hu­mans have an in­nate con­nec­tion to life and all liv­ing things.

Dur­ing a res­i­dency at the Hein­rich Böll Cot­tage, Achill Is­land, the artist be­gan to closely ex­am­ine or­ganic struc­tures found within the lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment when she ob­served sim­i­lar shapes and pat­terns in a va­ri­ety of lo­cal flora and fauna.

Parallel to this, dur­ing her re­search, Con­roy came across the con­cepts of sa­cred ge­om­e­try. In sa­cred ge­om­e­try, Ar­changel Me­ta­tron, the an­gel of life, over­sees the flow of en­ergy in a mys­ti­cal cube known as Me­ta­tron’s Cube. This struc­ture con­tains all of the geo­met­ric shapes in ‘God’s’ cre­ation and rep­re­sents the pat­terns that make up ev­ery­thing ‘God’ has made.

Through ob­ser­va­tion and draw­ing Con­roy be­gan to de-con­struct the or­ganic struc­tures that she found and dis­til them into simple geo­met­ric shapes. Hexagons, pen­ta­gons and cir­cles, along with the pla­tonic solids be­came im­pos­si­ble to avoid. It be­came pos­si­ble for the artist to see the struc­tural con­nec­tions be­tween el­e­ments in the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment. She be­lieves that there is a fa­mil­iar and uni­ver­sal un­der­ly­ing struc­ture within the nat­u­ral world, that con­nects us to each other and every other liv­ing thing.

There will be an open­ing re­cep­tion on Thurs­day, July 25, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
