For Bankley Gallery‘s latest exhibition, artists Sharon Swaine, Angela Brandys and Mel Scott have set out to experiment with combining their visual languages to create a multi-sensory installation. Somewhere on the colour spectrum is intended as a dialogue between the play of photographs, paintings, drawings and objects; some of which are new works created especially for the show.

Each artist has her own relationship with light and its effects; spanning the emotional, social, psychological and spiritual. High colour and light are used evocatively in the work which is on show at Bankley Gallery. Brandys uses photography and objects; constructing sets to represent scenes of the internal makeup and feeling of self, using her own body and experience as protagonist. Swaine’s work takes inspiration from music and literature which provides much of the subject matter in her recent work. She works with a language of colour, line and translucency placing figures in space and light in an attempt to crystallise inspiration. Scott is interested in the everyday psychology of human behaviour and how constructed environments impinge on the sense of self. She seeks to encourage discourse on what it is to be human in the present day.
