Gregor Harvie’s current work explores subatomic physics, questioning society’s faith in the power of numbers, which have so far failed to explain any of the fundamental forces that form our world. He argues that a new approach is needed to make the leap of imagination that will unlock our understanding.

His large-scale paintings take the few underlying concepts that are undisputedly accepted and from those, conceive new visualisations of the unseeable quantum of space and time. His paintings are accompanied by logic poems - word equations exploring the relationships between the unresolved and sometimes contradictory themes that his work explores.
