With the colouring in craze building momentum it seemed timely to bring an art and science focus to the topic and to have an event linked to ‘Shaping Colour’ Shaping Colour blog.
Artist Liz Shreeve and Physicist Leon Poladian had a serendipitous meeting at one of Liz’s exhibitions of artworks based on colour, shape and light. Leon and Liz have a shared interest in colour and shape from a different but similar perspective and have created a blog site called ‘Shaping Colour’ which reflects the similarities and differences in their work with light, colour and form.
Liz and Leon will speak about their individual relationships to the science of light and colour. Liz Shreeve will exhibit artworks in the Accelerator Gallery. Guests will be invited to join in some brain challenging pattern formation and colouring activities.
