Artists use colour to make you feel or see something, however a single colour can be translated in many ways. There is an undeniable instability to colour. Although, on a surface level hues appear stable, as relationships form between colours and their environment we find they endlessly transform. They are as variable as light.
A colour has many faces brings together five female artists from across Aotearoa with diverse artistic practices. Colour plays a pivotal role within each artist’s work and is explored through their unique visual language, dissecting the sensorial potential of surface and shape through bold abstraction.
