Barbara Cole | Featured at the Art Gallery of Hamilton
Barbara Cole, Finale, from White NOise
The upcoming exhibition, Water Works, at the Art Gallery of Hamilton will feature work by Bau-Xi Gallery artist, Barbara Cole.
The featured image, titled Finale, is from Cole's acclaimed White NOise series. Here the artist explores the medium of water as a natural lens which refocuses and reinterprets a painterly aesthetic. Inspired by its inherent reflective quality, Cole uses the underwater environment to challenge our perception of the figure in space.
Water Works highlights the various ways in which artists have used water as an artistic medium, investigated its unique properties (liquidity, transparency, movement, reflection), interrogated its role in the spiritual and psychological aspects of our lives, and advocated for the preservation of clean water.
The exhibition runs February 10 - May 27, 2018 at the Art Gallery of Hamilton. Click here for full exhibition and event details.
