Wilhelmina Barns-Graham @ Bohun Gallery

3 February 2018 - 24 February 2018

“Letting rip” is how Wilhelmina Barns-Graham described making her late work, with colour defining these energetic paintings and prints.
Wilhelmina Barns-Graham was a master of her craft, an artist perfectly attuned to every nuance of each hue and tone. Furthermore, she had the unusual gift of synaesthesia. This meant that sensations she experienced were translated intuitively into specific colours with attendant harmonies and discords. Colour played a central role throughout her life but it is in these late works, Joy of Colour: the late paintings and prints, where it explodes with new invigoration, each brush mark saturated with a different colour.
