Commissioned by Arts Brookfield
The artworks in Bright! showcase the possibilities of color in three dimensions. With the advent of digital and commercial technology, it has become easier to take the power of color for granted in two-dimensional mediums. The artists in Bright! – Justin Adian, Caitlin Bermingham, Benjamin Dowell, Charles Dunn, Juan Fernando Morales, and Courtney Puckett – take color to another level by manipulating it into sculptural forms. Whether made of plastic, textile, or paper, the artists use color as a foundation for the entire object, rather than the decorative finish to the piece. The power of these works lies in their ability to utilize light and physical form to shape our interpretation of color and its reflection on meaning and personal expression.
