In a work that exudes otherworldly strangeness, this seal in transformation by Abraham Anghik appears as a twisted mass of interwoven parts. WAG curator Darlene Wight has said of the artist’s works that they “...flow together to create complex though unified images with a strong focal point”–certainly so here in this strange and arresting variation on one of the artist’s favoured themes.
