Red, Brown, Yellow, Black, White: all colours used to describe people, somewhat contentiously, of culturally diverse backgrounds. In order to present a subtler approach to this fraught territory, Ngo investigates the formal qualities of colour through colour theory. The works also allow to consider different ways in understanding race for they stage their formal elements in performative ways which engage the public and thereby foster a reflection (in both senses of the word) on the politics of colour.

Inside includes work by eight artists who use the various technologies and traditions that painting offers to engage the Blackwood Gallery’s exhibition spaces and reflect on the established genre of interior painting. Several of the artists will paint directly on the Blackwood’s walls or floor while other artists will exhibit mural-sized or more intimately scaled easel paintings. All of these artists connect painting in its many guises—from illusionistic or schematic tableau to a celebration of paint’s physical nature—with built interior spaces in order to ask us to reconsider painting’s longstanding critical and poetic engagement with the rooms we inhabit.
