Surface Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of light and colour by Samuel Harriman. On Colour comprises a display of paintings and light installations based on ideas of colour, shape and light.
On Colour is a celebration of light. As Aesthetica Magazine remarks, Harriman’s practice “combines the mediums of light installation and painting to intonate the point that the use of light is a form of painting”. The use of painterly processes, the light as a form of paint, and canvas as a material, ties the mediums together. Drawing on colour theory and the way we perceive colour, Harriman’s work extends beyond the walls both physically and ethereally. Different shades of light infuse the space, from symbolic reds indicating matter and gravity, to connotative yellow representing thought, and generate a sense of relaxation and smooth movement. This journey will culminate in a light sculpture colour wheel, while the viewer is embraced by a distortion of natural light.
