Eighty years ago, a farm girl fretfully drifted to sleep in the eye of a tornado. Since then, The Wizard of Oz has journeyed across history, meeting new interpretations at every turn. From an allegory for economic reform, to a metaphor for immigration, humanism and even, the feminist plight, Dorothy's quest may hit everyone differently, but it still hits hard.

Today, the modern classic awakes on Philippe Le Miere's canvas. For him, Dorothy's story is about ripping back the curtain, questioning dogma and most strikingly, daring to be wise. Born from walking his own Yellow Brick Road, this work celebrates the myriad of meanings a good story springs.

Staring into Le Miere's glistening crystal ball, ask yourself, what do you see in the Great and Powerful Oz?
