The connections between the work of Brandys, Scott and Swaine has a double focus – that of the figure and that of light. The figure is the site of exploration and inquiry, and throughout the work there is an interest in exploring the bridge between the internal and external world.
Each artist has her own relationship with light and its effects; spanning the emotional, social, psychological and spiritual. High colour and light are used evocatively in the work which is on show at Bankley Gallery.
Brandys uses photography and objects; constructing sets to represent scenes of the internal makeup and feeling of self, using her own body and experience as protagonist. Swaine’s work takes inspiration from music and literature which provides much of the subject matter in her recent work. She works with a language of colour, line and translucency placing figures in space and light in an attempt to crystallise inspiration. Scott is interested in the everyday psychology of human behaviour and how constructed environments impinge on the sense of self. She seeks to encourage discourse on what it is to be human in the present day.
The artists see the exhibition at Bankley Gallery as an opportunity to experiment with combining their visual languages to create a multi-sensory installation which is intended as a dialogue between the play of Photographs, Paintings, Drawings and Objects; some of which are new works created especially for the show.
The three artists exhibiting in Somewhere On The Colour Spectrum met through the Turps Studio Painting Programme.
