Dreams of a Chrome T

26 February - 23 March 2019

Dreams of a Chrome T continues Johl Dwyer’s exploration of the ways in which pigment-based colour and light-based colour can meet and intersect.

The exhibition comprises a series of new translucent resin wall sculptures – to which for the first time he has added painted wooden frames – alongside the artist’s continuing series of powder-coated aluminium plinth-based sculptures.
Dwyer writes:

“I have always been intrigued by the PANTONE Goe system – which was created to address the demands of the print and design worlds by providing over 2000 chromatically-arranged solid colours using just 10 base colours. The inexplicable nature of colour as well as the complexities of colour-matching are the focus of my research in this new body of work.”

Dreams of a Chrome T is Johl Dwyer’s sixth solo exhibition at Tim Melville.
