Color on Colour - Night & Day
"Colour is a power which directly influences the soul" - Wassily Kandinsky
Visitors to this dynamic new exhibition of Calgary painters Mali Vargas and Errol Lee Fullen may be surprised to discover that although their work seemingly floats in the esoteric realm of Contemporary Colour Abstraction, its sources and inspiration are grounded in the physical act of their painting experience.
Although the works in this collection both obviously showcase the movement and physicality of their creation - the visual result is contrasted in what can be thought of as Night & Day. Vargas’ work evokes lyrical and optimistic lightness which is juxtaposed with Fullen’s deeply colourful nocturnal and subterranean undercurrents.
Color on Colour is an intriguing exhibition that highlights two colour laden approaches from opposite ends of the emotional spectrum.
