Reflection/Refraction

Small, intimate colourfield works are presented back-to-back echoing depictions of the inward and outward self.

About

“Colour is the heart of my practice. As a non-objective colour-field artist, I create works through a process of ritual, routine and reflection.  My colours are considered and mixed in tune to emotional states. I am curious how colour can express emotional psyche and illuminate internal conditions. As colours are added they become ambiguous; mingling and weaving on the page; much like our own emotions and experiences.

Reflection/Refraction is placed in the Salamanca Art Centre’s Lightbox and offers two distinct viewings to the public.

Artworks are presented back-to-back, encouraging the viewer to journey around the Lightbox to view both the public facing (Salamanca Place) and inwardly facing (SAC entrance).

These works have been created with the two concepts;

Reflection – works created to represent feelings of the internal and the private (found in the SAC entrance)
and
Refraction – that which is presented outwardly, how we bend ourselves to be more presentable and palatable (found on the Street view)

I invite you to this small intimate space, to spend time with these works, to allow your own experiences of the world to be found within these colour fields.”
– Catherine D’Orazio
