Faced with a work of art, the spectator should have the feeling that something has happened in it, that something is still happening and that this will continue for as long as the work exists. —Patricia Railing, 2004


'SHAPE CHROMA' is a trialogue between three painters whose formal inquiry into shape, colour and spatial illusion is presented in three different material approaches and methodologies. The artists explore the interrelationships between chromatic interaction; constructed space; illusionistic space and composition in a conversation with early European Modernist abstract painting and current digital information age influences. The constructed space of painting is playfully reconfigured in a set of new visual dialogues which reference both historical and 21st Century influences. 

This timely show takes a meta-Modernistic approach – looking back in order to move forward. The re-shaping of colour, represented though perfect and imperfect arrangements, re-examines the push and pull of the picture plane; and the choice of support and surface materiality further comments on the rich history of geometric abstraction, which has inspired and informed all three artists - their aim is not to repeat familiar tropes but to find new systems of making and new ways to re-present colour and form.
