From the Resene News - issue 1/2017
They say a picture tells a thousand words, the colours can tell a thousand more.
Ann Shelton’s exhibition at the Auckland Art Gallery (late 2016-early 2017), brings together Ann’s art with unique Resene paint colour combinations. The exhibition reviews over three decades of work and comprises major series of work such as room room and in a forest. These are complemented by new work as well as previously unseen images. Ann’s artistry is displayed on walls that have an artistry of their own thanks to Ann’s vision, and skilful paint application.
Colours from the Karen Walker Paints collection, including Resene Clementine Orange (persimmon orange), Resene Blanched Pink (dusty pink), Resene Albescent White (pale beige), Resene Jetsam Brown (lightened brown) and Resene Robin Egg Blue (grey blue) are used to create a sense of merging colour, where one colour gently evolves into the next. At first glance it’s easy for visitors to believe that the effect is created by lighting; a second look has visitors marvelling at what can be achieved with paint and colour.
