The adventures of Ovum and Spermatozoa as they travel through time and space
Mark Stapelfeldt
7–24 March 2024

The works in this series, The adventures of Ovum and Spermatozoa as they travel through time and space, are mixed media pieces then photographed on medium format film.

This concept arose with the gift of a box of rare bird eggs, the most beautiful collection of all sizes, shapes and colours. The eggs were used as inspiration in creating mixed media backgrounds and sets to show the magnificence of creation and the beauty and chance behind the miracle of life. Themes which the artist's practice is based on.

Soft focus, vibrant colours and void like spaces create a dream like atmosphere of contemplation and peace, allowing us to consider the majesty of our existence and what was before and will be after.

Please join us for a drink to celebrate the opening of Mark Stapelfeldt's exhibition on Friday 8 March (6–8PM).
