THE MEANING of life, philosophy, existentialism, dreams and animal spirits are all explored in a new exhibition at Backspace Gallery.
Entitled The Holy Grail, the exhibition features the work of local artist and comedian Ash Lieb and draws from literature and philosophy while referencing figures of mythology and folklore.
Lieb said the exhibition was a visual quest for meaning in the material and spiritual worlds, with his art calling on themes such as isolation, religion, hope, beauty and the sublime.
He said his exploration into the mysteries of the world and the heavens was guided by the common realities of contemporary life.
The exhibition will also display Lieb's fan-favourite artwork Weyekin which was recently shortlisted for finalist consideration at the Blake Prize for spiritual art.
The Holy Grail is being held at Backspace Gallery, Camp Street on Thursdays to Sundays until October 27.
