The latest exhibition by Creative Hinckley at their sunning new Atkins Building gallery is called 'Figuring Light 2: colour, shifting boundaries' and will open on 22 March and run until the 24 April 2011:

  • Monday, Tuesday:  9.00 – 6.30pm
  • Wednesday to Friday: 9.00 – 8.30pm
  • Saturday:  9.30 – 5.00pm.

The exhibition, which is curated by the artist John Lancaster and writer Dr Richard Davey, includes contemporary painting and sculpture with a focus on colour as the catalyst for change in creating the intriguing dynamic relationship between form and space.

Exhibiting artists in the show are:

Barrie Cook - who explores the ground form relationship through a heightened use of colour to create a luminescent glow in his work.

Ruth Sumner - explores the figure ground relationship as an energetic struggle in which both sides struggle for recognition and dominance.

Oliver Barrett - with sculpture that explores the figure/form relationship through three-dimensional form (sculpture) and space. Colour is used to challenge and question our understanding and preconceptions of how this relationship is visually interpreted.

John Lancaster - exhibits structures (see below) that are based on geometry that introduce colour to break down the rigid structure to create a flux of shifting form, pattern and rhythm.

For further information about the exhibition please contact John Lancaster on jjl@dmu.ac.uk or telephone 0116 254 2456

There will also be a panelled discussion to explore the themes and ideas surrounding the show on Tuesday 29 March @ 7.00pm in the gallery - ALL WELCOME. The panel for the discussion will include the artists, curators and will be chaired by Ian Kirkwood who is Head of Research for the Faculty of Art and Design at DeMontfort University, Leicester.
