The first exhibition this year at the Mercus Barn, in April, brings together three painters for whom colour is a central concern.
Caroline de Lannoy’s paintings employ a shifting range of subtly chromatic sequences that articulate a quiet optical movement through her pared down geometric structures. (website: www.carolinedelannoy.net and carolinedelannoy.blogspot)
In Sue Kennington’s paintings colour is given its bounded form through an eloquently choreographed painterly journey, celebrated and remembered in its found, soft ‘geometries’. (website: www.suekennington.com )
Sharon Hall’s work explores the perceptual shifts and optical instabilities produced by moving colour within and around sets of simple geometric divisions. (website: www.sharonhall.co.uk see also Sharon's interview: painters-table.com/link )
Each of these three artists has established international careers which span Europe and the USA and now here for the first time showing together as a group, in the Midi-Pyrenees, France.
