      Les Yeux du Monde presents Axis Mundi, an exhibition of new work by New York-based artists Dorothy Robinson, Kurt Steger, and Meg Hitchcock. The exhibition will run from Saturday, May 13th to Sunday, June 25th. An opening reception will be held at the gallery on Saturday, May 13th from 4-6pm.
      Axis Mundi, a Latin term referring to the cosmological axis of the Earth between the celestial poles, is a recurring and important trope in the history of art representing the conceptual connection between the higher and lower realms. As a symbolic link between Heaven and Earth, it is often understood as a reference to the sacred. This notion finds relevance in each of the exhibiting artists’ work: Robinson’s paintings, Steger’s sculpture, and Hitchcock’s text-based mixed-media pieces.
