In two consecutive exhibitions artists meet the challenge of making a purely monochrome statement, while being free to explore a variety of subjects, styles and media.
Black and white are polar opposites – a way of saying Yes/No, Good/Bad, Hero/Villain. They can also suggest refinement, a stripping back to the simple contrast between two elements. An exploration of the tonal range available between these two extremes opens up a world of subtlety and nuance. Without the emotional charge of colour neither the artist nor the viewer can take refuge. Art in black and white carries a concise and powerful message which demands our attention.
