CHROMA

Hugh Gillan, Peter Murray, Sheena Russell, Sarah Grant

Chroma features the work of four contemporary painters, Peter Murray, Hugh Gillan, Sheena Russell and Sarah Grant. Expanding on the subdued palette of their previous show, Monochrome, some colour has crept into their images of the urban landscape.

Hugh Gillan shows a series of oil paintings and drawings made with charcoal pencil on gesso, the medium almost scoring and disintegrating the surface of the boards, echoing the decaying nature of his liminal subject matter. Peter Murray renders in watercolour and ink dreamlike scenes which cross continents and time zones in their depictions of zeppelins and cityscapes. Sheena Russell’s intricate technique brings to life subdued and fluid images of the city while Sarah Grant’s painting method of reducing tone and superfluous detail takes us to a time which seems to hover somewhere between the past and the present.
