Johl Dwyer, ‘Cloud 1915’, 2019. Resin, oil, cedar, enamel and acrylic, 62 x 62cm. Courtesy: the artist and Tim Melville Gallery, Auckland.
Dreams of a Chrome T continues Johl Dwyer’s exploration of the ways in which pigment-based colour and light-based colour can meet and intersect.
The exhibition comprises a series of new translucent resin wall sculptures – to which for the first time he has added painted wooden frames – alongside the artist’s continuing series of powder-coated aluminium plinth-based sculptures.
Dwyer writes: “I have always been intrigued by the PANTONE Goe system – created to address the demands of the print and design worlds by providing more than 2000 chromatically-arranged solid colours using just 10 base colours. The inexplicable nature of colour as well as the complexities of colour-matching are the focus of my research in this new body of work.”
Dreams of a Chrome T is Johl Dwyer’s sixth solo exhibition at Tim Melville.
Exhibition opens: 6-8pm Tuesday 26 Feb 2019
