'Colour and Light'
Fri 10th February - Saturday 1st April 2017
Thursday to Sunday from 10am
Colour & Light: It’s a big subject but without light we wouldn’t be here. It was, after all, ‘in the beginning’.
This is the current exhibition at Blue Knob Hall Gallery and the artists and artisans have tackled this subject which can be one of the most challenging aspects of making art.
Emotions are often described in terms of colour; such as seeing red, feeling blue, green with envy; we feel a lightness of being, someone or something brings light or darkness to our lives, there’s no denying that color and mood are inextricably linked.
Colour theory can be an eye-opener into the world of art, not unlike music we are told. There is harmony and mood in colour as in music and a ‘wrong’ note can change the whole experience.
A corona of light around a man in Marie Cameron’s photo ‘Last Man Standing’ portrays strength, resilience, alone-ness and the beauty of a simple human figure. It shows how easily we can express a powerful statement with a touch of light. Alongside the colour, warmth and vibrancy of the artworks in this exhibition, the artists have covered all aspects; light has shone through and given us reflections, clouds, warmth and depth.
The exhibition continues until Sat April 1st.
