About the EXHIBITION
Marc Standing’s latest series The Oracles, acrylic on canvas, represents a departure from his more introspective search for identity in order to position himself within humankind’s age-old search for enlightenment. Each work depicts a mythical world, inhabited by transcendental beings and sacred artefacts, yet grounded in the familiar patterns of nature.
