    “I intend to speak of forms changed into new entities” begins the opening invocation of Ovid’s classical poem Metamorphoses. The epic work speaks to the inherent tensions of art and nature, of reality and illusion, as illustrated by dramatic, mythic and sometimes absurd transformations: from human to animal, from living being to inanimate object, changes of colour, changes of sex. Some transformations are literal; others are implied, or ‘meta.’ But one fact remains constant: to live is to experience change, to cause change, to create change.

    With our upcoming group show Metamorphoses, Neon Gallery intends to present a broad spectrum of thought-provoking works that reflect and shine a light on these dynamic and often opposing forces of metamorphosis that act to create, evolve and define the very nature of society and human existence.
