Victor Raphael moves between Polaroids (often of NASA images beamed back from space), painting embellished with metal leaf, and digital technology to achieve a body of work investigating space fields.

Raphael says, this work explores the relationship of the infinitely small to the infinitely large, of the microscopic to the macroscopic. Our capacity to comprehend these aspects of the universe suggests a profound connection with creation.

Within the range of work shown in this exhibition, we travel from photographs that imply exploding galaxies, star clusters and black holes to paintings that depict worlds beyond our reach.
