Studio 21’s current exhibition ‘Colour Notes’, celebrates the group’s 21st anniversary and explores how each artist expresses and interprets their own response to colour through narratives and memories.
Launched at the Knitting and Stitching Exhibition in October 2018 (where the majority of these shots were taken) to great acclaim, Colour Notes comprises a broad range of hues and tones in a varied imagery of texture, light and shadow. All of the pieces represent searching and thought provoking responses to the effect of colour on each artist’s life and practice.
Instead of a riot of colour, the exhibition comprises a broad range of hues and tones in a varied imagery of space, light and shadow. All of the pieces represent searching and thought-provoking responses. With a wide range of responses including: material colour in and of the landscape; colour created by the changing light of day or season; and capturing a moment of being in a specific place and time. Most notably, colour is described as conjuring and materialising the immaterial: emotional, experiential and memory.
