Leigh Arnold - Full Moons

1st JULY 2011: Opening of

Full Moons

a solo exhibition

by local artist

Leigh Arnold

on Friday from 6pm.

Leigh Arnold works at

the interface of science and art.

He is inspired by

 quantum physics,

astronomy,

mathematics,

string theory

and other arcane cosmologies.

He lives and works near Nimbin

in northern New South Wales

Australia.

All of Leigh's works are hand painted,

many using mixed media

with metallic pigments, subtle glazes

and extremely fine pen work.

His paintings are all the more extraordinary

as he does not use a computer in any way.

He has the "gift of dyslexia"

which makes using a computer very difficult

but opens up ways of seeing

mathematical and geometrical images

that most of us cannot imagine.

transporting the viewer into yet more unimaginable universes!
