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
“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.
