Pools of Colour | Thurs 11 APR - Fri 31 May
PV Thursday 11 April RSVP
A solo Exhhibition by Chris Bland
“The idea for these collages that make up the body of work for “Pools of Colour” originates in my studies of rock pools on the Northumbrian coast, pools full of colourful pebbles, shells and seaweed.
“Pools of Colour” also refers to the watercolour washes that underlie the collages.
I have then explored ways of cutting paper, making sharp edges with scissors or ruler or softer, arbitrary edges with controlled or random tearing, which allow colour washes to show through. I use a variety of papers, some of which are quite thick and, when torn, will reveal a second layer of muted colour.”
