Carousel Upstairs will be playing host to the new exhibition by Franco-British visual artist Geraldine Molia, “Ricochets” – a mesmerising collection that explores the myths, symbols, colours, textures and shapes of stones. Appearing insignificant at first sight, stones have been symbols of longevity and strength in many civilisations and across religion, astrology and science. Molia’s art explores the tension between the perceived strength of nature and the threat of its disappearance.
As well as the subject of her work, stones are used during the creation of it through Molia’s autohypnosis practice. She imagines carrying stones whilst projecting positive thoughts onto each of them. These visualisations enhance concentration, imagination and general well-being.
Geraldine Molia is a visual artist based in London, with work held in private collections throughout Europe and the United States. The tension within her work echoes the increasingly disrupted weather conditions caused by climate change. Molia hopes to generate conversation by inviting the viewer to question their own involvement and placement in society in the hope of preserving the environment.

Private View will be held on 23rd Jan, 6 – 8pm.
Viewings by appointment only 18th Jan – 13th March.
