CHASM Gallery: Chromo-spatial

Emma Coulter

30 Jan - 16 Feb 2015

chromo-spatial, at CHASM, in Brooklyn, New York, explored the medium of painting as it relates to its various support structures, and how colour may be used as a perceptual abstract idea. Deconstructing the architectural space, Coulter utilizes the inherent nature of a place as a device for site-specific painting. Through a rules based approach, painting and spaces are manipulated through a pre-defined language of colours. Using the window grid of a traditional Brooklyn loft as a reference point Coulter created a series of works for the exhibition.
