A salon-style group exhibition exploring the colour BLUE in its myriad tones, associations and metaphors.

The colour blue has an association of open spaces, intuition, imagination and represents both the sky and sea. Historically the origin of blue pigments used by painters is rich in meaning as it is in hues. “Ultramarine’ for example, comes from the Latin oltramarino meaning ‘from beyond the seas.’ Literally describing the journey of lapis lazuli, the pigment used in ultramarine, to the East and West from the far-flung areas in the world where it was mined.

‘If you see a tree as blue, then make it blue.’

Paul Gauguin
