Our perception of colour occurs when light, striking an object, is reflected back to our eye. Our experience of colour, however, is much more subjective. Colour is a sensation, a reaction to a hue that arises from our senses, emotions, experiences and knowledge.
This exhibition features works from the AGA Collection that focus on colour as their primary element or property. From large abstract paintings to experiments in colour photography, this exhibition celebrates the bright, bold, brash and even the more sombre colours of our world.
Take time to bring some colour into your world, and enjoy the works of artists from Edmonton and around the world.
This exhibition is organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Catherine Crowston.
