SOMA Contemporary announces “Three Colours – Yellow” the last in a series of exhibitions investigating the
Primary Colours and their acquired meanings. Opening reception will be held on Thursday May 19th at 7:00pm.
Yellow is Hopeful. It shines with optimism, enlightenment, and happiness. Yellow carries promise. This forms the exhibition’s context, to provide an overarching setting for the works, all of which include or are produced in yellow. Participating artists have been asked to express their own thoughts on yellow’s fundamental values. The aim is not merely to interact with the perceptual property on a theoretical level, but to find a more personal, creative approach which, against the exhibition’s guiding motif of the colour yellow, allows the individual voice of each participating artist to emerge.
