Go Green at Chrissie Cotter Gallery

Friday, 12 April 2019


Six artists in this exhibition explore the multiplicity of green in a visual conversation with colour and community.

“Green is the colour of nature, balance, energy and renewal and is synonymous with spring, aliens and the traffic light that says go,” said Elizabeth Rankin, one of the artists featured in the group exhibition.

“But green also carries with it envy, greed and naivete as well which is why the artworks in this unique exhibition can be read both separately and as one diverse installation,” she said.

The six artists have drawn on their different responses to the colour green to create an immersive world that invites viewers to reflect on the values and beliefs embedded in a colour.

The unusual location of the Chrissie Cotter Gallery, with its direct link to the adjoining Camperdown Park and Pocket City Farm project, also provides a special setting for the Green Exhibition.
