Hidden Chords at The Island, Bristol

Hidden Chords brings together two parallel but related visions of spirituality and oneness expressed in the artwork of Lesley Cottle and Corinne Randall. Corinne Randall's inspiration started with the compilation of a series of books on spiritual themes, each one related to a specific  colour.
