filomena coppola

VIVID exhibition

Opening THIS Saturday 2-4pm at Chapman and Bailey, VIVID!
 
An exhibition by Sue Beyer, Louise Blyton, Filomena Coppola, Rox De Luca and Ilona Nelson.
 
Colour is often dismissed as having a purely decorative function. In this exhibition colour is used to describe cultural oppositions, emotional states, transformation, self censoring and the experience of place. The work presents a socially acceptable surface of creative expression, a thin veil which if penetrated reveal five individual her-stories. Stories, which are unique to the individual but shared in experience by many. In this exhibition, colour is a reflector which projects the experience and creates a space for immersion, conversation and reciprocity.
