Martin Cottis - A Nest of Correspondences

Mon-Fri: 10:30-5pm

Martin Cottis' sculptures and carvings of birds, fishes and riverine life take on board Swedenborg’s influential theory of correspondences, that the physical universe is a reflection of a spiritual one, an idea important across the Romantic, Symbolist and Surrealist movements. Birds, for Swedenborg, signify thoughts, whilst fishes signify facts and types of knowledge.
