When I first met Rhea her work was beautiful and very different; she created stunning collars, the forms were bold, the colours muted. Then, seemingly overnight, there was a colour explosion; it was like a butterfly bursting out of its cocoon! The collars became bright, bold and proud. The transformation wasn’t done by halves, Rhea uses contrasting colours confidently to great effect. Since then Rhea has developed unique jewellery ranges and new knitted surface patterns which are applied to many different products.
I love colour and therefore when Rhea suggested curating an exhibition based around this I couldn’t be happier. It’s been great to sit back and hand over the gallery reigns! The quality of work that Rhea’s sourced is really exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing the end results. This exhibition will show high quality, contemporary work including, textiles, glass and jewellery. Each artist’s work uses the visual impact of colour combinations to make a statement.
