Join us at Salon Ninety One this Saturday for a Walkabout with Pierre Le Riche. The Artist will discuss his latest body of work entitled ‘Colour Complex’.
COLOUR COMPLEX is an exploration of the artist’s obsession with colour and how the perception thereof can be manipulated through different materials and applications. The works are formalist in nature and invite the viewer to reconsider how they perceive colour by deconstructing it to the point where it becomes pixelated, monotonous and almost optically challenging to engage with. In practice, Le Riche deems colour his best friend and greatest enemy in the sense that it is exciting to explore, but impossible to control. It is for this reason that he chooses to stitch his explorations down in embroidery, tapestry, quilting and three-dimensional installations. The exhibition will be on view until the 30th of July 2016.
