By Alice Morey


Ausstellung : 26.04 – 17.05

“ Shut your eyes, wait, think of nothing. Now open them…One sees nothing but a great coloured undulation. What then? An irradiation and glory of colour. This is what a picture should give abyss in which the eye is lost, a secret germination, a coloured state of grace..lose consciousness. Descend with the painter into the dim tangled roots of things, and rise again from them in colours, be steeped in the light of them.”

Alice’s first solo painting exhibition in Berlin with paintings on canvas that have been worked on since she moved here four years ago. They are centred on the changes in her dreams, with feelings of loss and memory catalysed by living in a new place. The use of colour is predominant in her painting work. They are worked on intensively with the different mediums of household paints, crayons, acrylics and finished with a thick layer of oil paint. Alongside these there some of her newest works that concentrate on the small fantasy worlds she forms through association with nature, science and odd objects. The urban landscapes that she plunged herself into whilst making pop up events; the people, the places, the essence of structures are all resolved in some form in her paintings. Whether it be the mark, the shape, the figure, the colour, the feeling.

‘A Narative in Colour’

An open workshop with Peter Morey

Saturday, 11. May 15:00-19:00

Free entry

‘Doodling, comics and narrative.’

‘Think about the human impulse to doodle. We doodle to assuage anger, anxiety, or fear, to amuse ourselves, to soothe our sadness, to express sexual frustration, to relieve boredom, or to ‘detach’ and meander mentally. Every doodle, every drawing, every story has some underlying emotional basis; explore that emotion.’

(Ivan Brunetti, cartoonist.)

Saturday’s workshop/session will be an invitation to the public to draw from their imagination, together, on a giant roll of paper. The workshop will then move from chaos to order with a series of exercises in building narrative content through pictures and words.

Topics include: mark-making; drawing on experience; the relationship of words and pictures.

The final consideration of the day will be of colour in sequential art. Ivan Brunetti will have the final word:

‘As an integral part of the process [of cartooning], colour can solidify spaces, harmonise compositions, or strike necessary discordant notes; it is yet another expressive tool at the cartoonist’s disposal.’

(Ivan Brunetti, cartoonist.)

 ‘Colour’, chromophiles and chromophobes.’

‘”Drawing” and “colour” are siphers for “order” and “chaos”‘

(David Batchelor, ‘Chromophobia’)

‘Colour is enslaved by line that becomes writing’

( Yves Klein, artist.)

Sunday’s session will be a natural progression of Saturday’s, with a specific emphasis on colour in relation to sequential art that carries a narrative. We will begin with the doodle once again.

Topics include: Subordinating colour to design via colour theory; colour as chaos; chaotic colour as kitsch; a continuation of Saturday’s themes also.

Peter Moreys current practice is engaged with drawing from the imagination, applying constructive constraints to these raw ideas and processing them with traditional media, especially through print-making. His work is a vehicle for storytelling, and has a leaning towards the aesthetics of comics and underground graphics. Berlin has a vibrant scene which plays host to many of the most exciting comics-producers and underground artists (Push Wagner is one of the most name-able, but many are almost anonymous graffiti artists), so He would benefit greatly from actively engaging in the scene which exists there. The projectsHe will undertake with Fruit Salad Boutique will be the form of this engagement, and He will use them to further his experiments with imaginative drawing and the constructive development and processing of such ideas into presentable pieces. The proposed internship will thus be an exploration of process, a search for audience, and an experiment with good, sustainable print-making practices outside of an educational context.

Starting this internship with the open workshops at Prem Arts Galerie alongside his sisters first painting exhibition ‘Colour Abyss`
