AboutWe are obsessed with the dynamic vibration of colour.
Chromaphilia showcases a new body of work from Leicester based artists Mark Boot, Simon Woolerton and Jamie Scott.
The exhibition challenges our interpretation of the physical world through the sensation of colour. A large fluorescent âspace drawing' suggests both sexual union and asexual division through the language of anatomical models, and the colour-coded diagrams that we rely on to navigate our urban environments. Intense monochromes are used to distinguish between âconnections' and the structural elements that sustain its bimorphic relationship. A group of oil paintings derived from sounds, celebrate the vibrancy of polychromatic relationships and the modulation of tone through colour, each painting an orchestrated landscape of marks that recede and advance within pictorial space. Finally, an installation of polymorphous colour and shape explores the play between positive and negative space.
The distinct use of colour is a significant aspect of each artist's varied working practice.
