Wendy Hannah: Chroma

3 December to 27 January 2019

Opening Saturday 1 December, 2.30PM

Chroma, a new exhibition by Wendy Hannah, explores colour, pigment and materials, creating an immersive environment reflecting the different facets of her practice.

Wendy Hannah has been painting for fifteen years.  She began her practice with community art courses before attending Elam School of Fine Arts.  Through her Bachelor studies she developed a keen interest in the alchemy of paint, experimenting with chemical reactions and the science of artmaking.

This exhibition brings Hannah’s interest of pigment investigation into a new dimension, incorporating think, thin, sticky and vicious pigments with unexpected sculptural supports.

She has been working with Colin Gooch Technical Director and Mike Clowes Technical Manager of Resene Paints with a tool box of pigments and additives to create an ambitious homage to colour and form.
