'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.
