About the exhibition
“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way.” -Georgia O’ Keefe
C O L O R. To name a few - hansa yellow, ultramarine blue, cadmium red medium, magenta, cobalt turqouise, permanent green. Imagining these pops of color in paint, wool, glazes or fabrics can trigger a creative buzz that needs to be instantly and compulsively explored. Scribbles, drips, dots, stitches, lines and layers create a language to express a collective rhythm in color, process and play. Color Compulsion brings together work that blurs what we know with what we feel.
