Featured in Donwood’s book of the same name, his artworks were inspired by an idea of a cathedral of sound. Creating a natural tunnel effect, the works encourage viewers to stop and look at them with not only a feeling of mystery but also melancholy.

 Stanley Donwood’s Far Away is Close at Hand in Images of Elswhere runs from 20th September to 19th October at The Outsiders Gallery. For more information visit the gallery’s website.
