“Perpetual Motion”: Arta Gallery, April 7 – 21, 2014

Perpetual Motion

“Let the movement be slow and savour of solidity at the base and rise quivering to the tree tops and to the sky, always rising to meet it joyously and tremulously... the spirit must be... perpetually moving through, carrying on and inducing a thirst for more and a desire to rise.” (Emily Carr)

Motion and movement is a critical element in the work of ColourShift Artists Karen Taylor, Kate Taylor, Lisa Hickey, Sann Sann Lam and Mike Smalley. The physicality in the action of making art translates into dynamic lines and composition, overlaid with the shimmering contract and movement of colour. The ColourShift Abstract Art Collective is a group of artists committed to interpreting the work around them and imagining it in new and different ways. The medium used enhances that communication and clarifies the vision of the imagined piece.
