The External Eye: Yana Bystrova and Paula Henderson
This exhibition brings together two artists engaged with color and the manner in which its inherent properties – hue, value, saturation, intensity for example, offer a vehicle for understanding the outside world. This is not to say color is the only visual element at play, but employed as the primary element with which to draw the viewer’s attention – the first glance. Once there, in front of the artwork/painting, we look more carefully – following how each color is contained by lines, then shifts with light upon it, and then, we notice perhaps with what shapes each artist defined/created their form. Why did the artist make these choices, for what purpose?
