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.
