Richard Hanna

Mandorla is an exhibition of paintings, poetry and music by Richard Hanna

A ‘Mandorla’ is a form of sacred geometry where two circles overlap and create a third space,
an almond shaped interstice called a ‘Mandorla’.
In Celtic lore it is the symbol of imagination and the source of all inspiration.

Richard Hanna regards the symbol as a gateway. In this exhibition of paintings, poetry,
and music he explores the symbolic, visual and musical poetics of the shape.

Richard will be presenting some music from his up coming new CD which has 10 tracks,
each one corresponding to a painting in the exhibition

Some background music will be played by Robyn Sutherland

The Depot Artspace 28 Clarence St, Devonport, Auckland.
