EXHIBITION: Seeing Colour Anew
Colour. As artists, we are intuitively aware of the aesthetic appeal of colour combinations. As researchers, we often look to create relationships between the artist and his or her work. As educators, we understand and teach colour theory and methods related to different mediums spanning a variety of techniques. Yet how often do we challenge our inherent perception of colour?
In “Seeing Colour Anew”, our group of undergraduate to graduate artists, educators and researchers challenged ourselves to explore colour through a wide variety of mediums. We have sketched, painted, sculpted, photographed, melted, smeared, gathered, grown, collected, spun, woven and bound colour in our artworks in order to create a new understanding of our relationship with colour.
This exhibition highlights a selection of artworks and research processes each individual created over the spring term. Challenge your own perceptions in order to see colour anew.
