4 April – 27 June 2009
Art and music connect in this new exhibition by visual artist Kevin Laycock and composer Michael Berkeley.
Exploring the relationship between music and colour, the exhibition includes a series of artworks by Laycock, which are synchronised with a musical score by Berkeley.
Laycock is an abstract painter whose colourful works are given order through geometric lines and shapes - a structure which responds to musical theory, colour and form. A series of new paintings have been created for this exhibition which is shown alongside paintings from the Gallery’s collection of abstract paintings, giving the exhibition an interesting historical context.
To accompany the paintings, digital wallpaper is projected onto the gallery walls, floor and ceiling, creating a visual chamber of imagery brought to life by music.
