Workshop: Exploring Black, Monday 17 February, 14:00 - 16:00, £12/£10 members/concs
A workshop using painting and drawing to explore the richness and versatility of the colour black, ‘the queen of all colour’ (Renoir).

This exhibition Darklight presents an ongoing series of large multi-panelled paintings on canvas by Bristol painter Nick Moore. They are an exploration of black as energy, working against the stereotypical cast of the colour as depressive or as an endgame. Recently shown at APT Gallery, London, they continue the Dark Intervals series from 2007, and are rooted in spontaneity and improvisation. They combine the elements of chance and deliberation, what in music John Cage talked about as ‘considered improvisation’, and are a direct encounter (or series of encounters) with the material, embodying the sensuousness and physicality of painting as work.
