The Saturated Palette
The Saturated Palette, a new group exhibition at Agora Gallery held this March, explores exuberance in color. Featuring ten different artists, the exhibition is able to explore the use of color across still life, portraiture, landscape, and abstract work. Some pieces demonstrate how to use intense tones sparingly to create emotional effect, while others show us that darker and subtler tones are in fact a different kind of saturation. There are also some lively color explosions that instantly light up a room. Representational works take lessons in color from non-representational ones, and vice-versa. Using oil, acrylic, pastel, and encaustic, these ten artists take their palettes to the extreme.
