Building with Colour examines the use of colour in the work of seven contemporary artists, some very well-known and established, and others from a younger generation at the beginning of their careers: Helen Baker, Siân Bowen, James Hugonin, James Johnson-Perkins, Claire Morgan, Tuesday Nesbitt , Duncan Newton, and Sean Scully. Full colour illustrations of their work are accompanied by biographical notes and three essays. Helen Baker, the curator of the exhibition, discusses the material presence of colour in making paintings; Chris Yetton analyses the fascinating working practices and ideas of James Hugonin, based on a systematic, but poetic use of colour marks; and Malcolm Gee considers the structuring and signifying nature of colour in modern art.
