4th Floor Gallery
Colour and Space
15 March–28 April 2012
From an early age, Kalkhof’s visual interest was stimulated by anything colourful in nature or in man-made objects. Since then, the use of formal elements of straight and curved line, and painted colour fields in grids, circles and squares, have been distinctive pictorial features in his work.
Kalkhof constantly directs our attention to historically resonant, well-established forms and primary basic colours, which exist across numerous cultures and periods of time. He also has an additional interest and curiosity for ancient and modern cultures outside Europe, especially the Orient. He reflects on these cultures and their inclusion of geometry, and these elements filter into his work through his use of colour and form. Kalkhof has been fascinated by the relationship of colour and space since the sixties and has been exploring the theme ever since.
This is Peter Kalkhof’s tenth exhibition at Annely Juda Fine Art. He had his first exhibition at Annely Juda Fine Art in 1970 and has exhibited widely in England and Abroad.
