An exhibition exploring the genre of the monochrome curated by Heather Boxall
In Light of the Monochrome explores the many interpretations of the monochrome genre. The monochrome has the quality of being luminous, emitting or reflecting light through the painted surface. Light can also be regarded as a condition of spiritual awareness, divine illumination, which references the ‘transcendental’ or ‘sublime’ often attributed to the monochrome. Artists are also exploring the monochrome through digital and photographic light techniques. This exhibition brings together some contemporary reflections on the genre.
Exhibiting artists include Jane Harris, David Batchelor, Pip Dickens, John Hilliard, Estelle Thompson, Heather Boxall, Manya Donaque and Clare Booker.
