EXHIBITIONS / COLOURISM
27.10.2011 to 19.11.2011
This solo exhibition by Mark Titmarsh explores the spectacular nature of colour and its importance in maintaining the presence of painting in its interface with other media especially sculpture, installation, performance and video. The show will include works on various materials including perspex, book dustjackets and videos of performances that show colour in the trans-substantiated form of coloured balls and spray string. The catalogue essay looks at the historical prejudices against colour and the ways certain artists are nominated, colourists, indicating an historical relationship with colour from pigments of the earth, to synthetic laboratory colours to screen based pixel colour.
