I Wish I Could See The World The Way You Saw The World

2011, installation, monochromatic light fixture, four colourfield paintings from the Kenderdine Art Gallery collection. (works by Herbert Bayer, Yves Gaucher, Gary Lee-Nova, Douglas Morton.)

Works from the Kenderdine collection were selected for their zeitgeist, possessing the sort of optimism and assuredness often seen in work of the 1960s. Installed under a light fixture that emits only one wavelength, colour relationships were stripped away from these once-vibrant canvases, rendering them grey and depleted. Once faded, they became something of a quiet lament for a more hopeful, bygone era.
