Private View: Carol Robertson - Pointstar
2 May, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Star, 2016, Oil on canvas, 180 x180 cm
Carol Robertson is known for her evocative paintings composed of the elemental form of the circle in delicately radiant colours with subtly transforming grounds. Working with a refined palette of closely related tones, Robertson believes in the powerful emotive and spiritual qualities of individual colours, using these to build complex layers of association.
In the works included in Pointstar, the circle has become less distinct, its radius implied in star shapes where the continuous circular flow is replaced by sharp points staking out the perimeter. Here, the pulsating rhythms that characterise much of Robertson’s work are explored in bursts of energy generating from the core of the star, creating dynamic visual experiences that evoke the sensations of light, movement and touch.
