Gradient is a photography exhibition without any photographs. Or perhaps it could better be described as an exhibition about Photography. It is conceived as a tribute to colour theory and to the materials and processes employed in creating images, although no actual images are present – at least not in an obvious way.
Contemporary colour theory encompasses two colour models: the CMYK, or four colour, model, which relies on capturing and printing techniques to produce chromatically resilient images, and the RGB, or light-colour, model, which requires recording and screen devices to achieve physicality.
This exhibition features three complementary works which, taken together as a single unit, invite reflection on the materiality of the images and their transformation from binary code sequences to tangible objects.
Color Tinta (2017)
Color Tinta is a site-specific installation made up of two spatially opposed elements that are connected with the idea of colour pigmentation. One of these elements comprises four large format prints cascading down from the ceiling to the floor, each one printed with only one of the ink’s four primary colours. The other shows the 256 colour combinations that can be produced by mixing those four primary colours together, printed on cylinders of photographic paper arranged on a ledge running all the way round the exhibition space.
Color Luz (2017)
This interactive audio-visual work is designed to offer the audience an immersive experience in an RGB colour space, thereby referencing colour composition through the use of light. A screen device and a controller allow visitors to move through the never-ending virtual space that is generated as they pass from colour to colour within the RGB model.
Gradación (2017)
This work comprises an artist’s book with pages printed exclusively with black ink, applied in different percentages of saturation to produce tonal grading that progresses gradually from white to black on unevenly numbered pages and from black to white on evenly numbered pages. The middle pages are the only pages where the grading coincides, with a colour saturation of 50%.
As a group of works which focus on the creative processes underlying an image rather than their result, Gradient is very much an experiential project, occupying the middle ground between technology and poetry.
