'AN EYEFUL OF VINCENT'
If the eye supplies the mind with a constant flow of information, the individual considers the meaning of what is seen, and then judges it against the known. However, art offers the mind a different experience; it can stimulate unfamiliar feelings of the ‘sublime, ‘aesthetic’ or even ‘tasteful’. The surrealist intellectual Andre Breton unleashed many new concepts for this ‘beyond space and time’ feeling and opened up a fantastic variety of possibilities.
In this show the painterly adventures of Rowena Comrie, expose sharp and smooth evocations of colour possible with formal arrangements in abstract dissonance. Guided specifically by Vincent Van Gogh’s raw mix of form and colour in his painting of ‘Bedroom at Arles:
"The walls are pale violet.
The floor is covered in red tiles.
The bed and chairs are warm yellow.
Sheets and pillows are light yellow green.
The quilt is scarlet.
The window green.
The washstand orange.
The washbasin blue.
The doors are mauve."
Letters -Vincent Van Gogh
