Colour Talks

Works on canvas, paper, perspex and metal

By Ursula Kellett

Showing at Karamel, 4 Coburg Road, London N22 6UJ.

Colour Talks is the title of the new exhibition of works by Ursula Kellett at Karamel in Wood Green.  If colour talks, then there will be some very sophisticated conversations going one between her artworks in the gallery over the coming month.

The exhibition shows the innovation and experimentation of an artist at the top of her game. She is part painter, part alchemist drawing and continually exploring with colour and scale. In the exhibition there are small perspex globes and monumental painting.  There are several series of works. The Lenticulars series are exquisitely coloured discs with the quality of stained glass.  A further series show how here approach can be controlled to produced pictures that depict national identity’s and hint at costume and cultures. Pictures in the series can be purchased individual by work best at scale showing her progression of ideas of mastery of her technique.

Ursula says: “I love the unpredictability of outcome when I pour lacquers, combined with natural pigments, inks, earth and sand onto canvas metal or Perspex. Gravity and the chemistry of the different material create an image that looks like it is frozen in time.

Unexpected colours and textures appear where the different substances meet, shapes and threads are created, sometimes resembling a textile. Also, by adding more transparent layers I can achieve a hard glass like appearance. Hand printed Japanese paper, acrylic paints, found objects are also added to the patchwork image which reflects my depiction of modern life with its multitude of colours, information and impressions.”
