‘Water + Colour’ equals a fresh take on a traditional medium at the new Griffin Gallery exhibition
West London’s Griffin Gallery is challenging the traditional preconceptions of watercolour in their new exhibition ‘Water + Colour’, running from 13 February to 14 March 2014.
From award-winners to international exhibitors, nine artists from major institutions all over the world have been hand picked by Becca Pelly-Fry, Director of the Griffin Gallery, to showcase new contemporary techniques in watercolour. This selling group exhibition showcases work using the breadth and variety of contemporary water-based colour, including ink, watercolour and acrylic.
Watercolour is often seen as a difficult and unpredictable medium, best suited to delicate landscape paintings, mainly due to its translucency and ability to portray light. Educated at some of the best art institutions in the world, from the Royal College of Art to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, these artists have reworked this much-misunderstood medium to create surprising and spectacular contemporary artwork in a range of styles.
