In Light of Monochrome

Reneé Pfister Art & Gallery Consultancy is proud to annouce Pip Dickens participation at the Exhibition and Symposium In Light of Monochrome  

Her symposium paper: Netherworlds of Greyness: Green-lipped Geishas and Old Sheep Dogs

An exhibition exploring the genre of the monochrome in painting curated by Heather Boxall  |

In Light of the Monochrome explores the many interpretations of the monochrome genre. The monochrome has the quality of being luminous, emitting or reflecting light through the painted surface.  Light can also be regarded as a condition of spiritual awareness, divine illumination, which references the ‘transcendental’ or ‘sublime’ often attributed to the monochrome. Artists are also exploring the monochrome through digital and photographic light techniques. This exhibition brings together some contemporary reflections on the genre.

Exhibiting artists include Jane Harris, David Batchelor, Pip Dickens, Estelle Thompson, Heather Boxall, Manya Donaque and Clare Booker.

The exhibition opening will be preceded by a symposium.
