Collection: The Weight of Colour

The Weight of Colour, an exhibition of new paintings by Luke Hannam (b. 1966) and Rosa Roberts (b.1984). Hannam’s newest works showcase his aptitude for invoking visceral responses via his handling of colour, focusing on a timeless subject matter of the portrait. Roberts’ recent works focus almost exclusively on flowers and vases as subject matter, challenging the traditional motif with a playful and exciting energy in both brushwork and colour choice. 
Both artists converge on the essence of colour and mark-making, producing an exhilarating array of unique, sumptuous and arresting compositions. Texture and working remain a common thread, as does the re-presenting of age-old themes in art history.
