A Trick of the Light, curated by Juan Bolivar


James Hopkins, Gary Simmonds, John Stark, Pamela Richardson and Kevin Smith, Julie Verhoeven, Leon Woolls, Freya Wright There are three ways in which we interpret colour: Impression — our visual response, Expression — our emotional response and Construction — our cultural response. However objects in the world do not posses colour; it is the light reflected from these that generates colour. The exhibition A Trick of the Light uses this familiar expression to bring together a group of seven London based contemporary artists whose concerns examine the phenomenological relationship between the eye and brain, and the way in which the mechanisms behind perception shape our world.
