Shifting Horizons explores symbolic links across cultures and between ancient and contemporary lives.

Shifting Horizons explores symbolic links across cultures and between ancient and contemporary lives. Kay's works are reflections on encounters with the natural world. As the artist explains "transience and permanence are the poles between which my practice has been suspended. [...] my art tends to emphasize the liminal: the state of being between fluidity and solidity, between absence and substance, between order and disorder."

"A desert looms high in my personal and cultural memories. On the one hand, violent campaigns and tribal feuds have been fought over an expanse of the arid terrain in which I was born. On the other hand – a desert is a serene place of meditation and contemplation. In the dusty Chinese burial pits, filled with the remains of an ancient empire, I reflected on my past desert experiences that were crucial to my decision to become an artist, and have shaped my subsequent thinking and the choices I have made. Back in the studio, I set out to make a body of work that will offer a contemplative space in which to reflect, among other things, on wars and its aftermath." – Hanna Kay
