IN BETWEEN ATMOSPHERES
Patricia Ready Gallery
Acrylic and watercolour paper mounted on canvas. 140x180 cm each, diameter 8m, series of 13 paintings.
The Sala Gráfica of the gallery contains the installation of 13 canvas size 170 x 130 cm arranged next to each other creating the walls of an hexadecagon architecture. This installation creates a new room and structure that invites the viewer to have a continuous and immersive experience in this collection of shades.
In Between Atmospheres is an installation of paintings, a new series of abstract monochrome color saturations in a continuation of the Atmosphere Series initiated in 2013. The continuous color progressions create a palpable tension in hypnotic circular rhythms, seeming almost as if they developed spontaneously in reaction to their environment.
The colors are inspired by the seaside landscape at Coliumo during Casa Poli artist in residence in Chile in collaboration with Triangular Project (2015). The works depict a collection of shades reflected on the horizon during different moments of the day. Influenced by the position of the sun, the climate and the proximity of the Pacific Ocean, the paintings grasp families of color temperatures found in sunny, foggy and rainy days during sunsets in the venture of transporting daylight through abstraction.
