The human perception of color is based in visual processing. Visual processing takes place in the cerebral cortex – the portion of the brain where “higher-order” functions such as language and perception occur. The perception of color is a scientific concern historically addressed by scientists, artists, and theorists alike. Color is of interest to all parties because it is the basis of physical reality and perception. Glass is an ideal medium to explore color relationships. Glass is host to rich pigments with varying opacity, and the material captures, reflects, and refracts light.
The glass artworks in Chromatica were selected for their relationships to both the philosophical and physical/formal concerns, with the intention to explore color relationships.
Featured artists include: Tom Kreager, George Dielman, Jeremy Hansen, and Evan Seeling.
All four artists have ties to the Midwest and Colorado.
Chromatica is made possibly by the Colorado College Cultural Attractions Fund.
