Octave is a collection of eight paintings, by Elizabeth Gray-King, which invite viewers to pause and ponder on how they see themselves and how relate to others.

The paintings titled, Hear, Wait, Watch, Leap, Chill, Call, and Fly culminate in the final piece titled Be. Using complementary colours, and lone figures, we are taken through an exploration of how we see ourselves in the world, how we communicate, respond and relate to God and the world around us. The images give space for people to consider their own experiences and circumstances, and how they might move forwards.

This exhibition comprises 8 small canvases which are attached to their own individual table-mountable easels. They do not require wall mounting. They are packed in 8 boxes which will fit in most cars. The ease of moving this exhibition makes it ideal for certain spaces and may be used in small groups or for one-off events, quiet-days, conferences or services.

The exhibition comes with a Conversation and Reflection Booklet, inventory, comments sheets, and practical notes.
