Gallery 2 - "... greater that the sum of the parts"

"The whole is greater than the sum of the parts" said Aristotle (Metaphysica).

These works were born twice; once individually, and once again when they came together.
Each small piece was originally painted, not as part of a larger painting, but as a separate work, with its own story.
But when it was time to display them, it became obvious that alongside each other was how they came to life.

Together they made far more impact than apart, turning out to be part of something bigger than any one individual or piece.
The process mirrors life. When we come together, with all our different qualities, both within ourselves and amongst each other we can achieve far more than we do individually.
