    POLYPHONICS refers to the harmony of two or more textures in a melodious composition. This exhibit is to explore harmony between colours or chords. Unless working with light, artists work in a subtractive colour model to achieve these distinct ideas. Explorations are of colour harmonies such as cool, warm, complementary, analogous, monochromatic, or triadic, to create a whole concept. Works presented are largely involving multimedia imagery whether mimicking, projecting, or displaying.

    This exhibition will show projects of emerging local artists in a variety of formats including media, installation, and painting.

    Saturday, December 13 | 7pm
    The James Black Gallery | 144 East 6th Avenue, Vancouver, BC

    To be beside yourself. To think of others, besides yourself. To feel outside yourself. We are in interaction with an affective field, the body a surface of intensities, the brain translating these, at times, as emotions or feelings.

    Artworks have the capacity to move us, and artworks contain much that resists interpretation. The ‘emotional turn’ in art might stem from the realization that the experience of the body means something, especially in its connection to the surrounding world – how relations between things, object, beings, and events, assemblages of materials and entities external to ourselves, have potential for sparking new affective relations.
