Our world is full of colour, & colour is full of diverse meanings & interpretations. We associate certain colours with certain moods or ideas. The artwork in ‘Chromatic Connections’ invites us to enjoy dazzling riots of colour & dynamic monotone studies, all while interpreting what each tone & shade means to the artist & to us.
Adriele Au’s ‘Puddlluv’ sculptures utilize colour to evoke welcoming, cheerful emotions, are crafted from intricately shaped party streamers on birch wood panels to form multi-coloured swirling shapes, evocative of people coming together.
In Paul Gravett’s ‘Colour Study’ photo based works, light & colour become the subject matter to reveal rich palettes, patterns & textures through meticulously photographed layers of transparent films & papers.
Breaking free from representation, these obsessively intricate & experimental works embody a playful yet contemplative approach to interpreting what we perceive.
