Colour Time (Verse Live)
Verse is pleased to present Colour Time by Jonathan Chomko, as part of Verse Live at Frieze No.9 Cork Street in London.
Chomko’s exhibition is an exploration of colour, perception and expression in digital space. Colour Time Sync is a generated film, where two panes of colour cycle in and out of alignment. Sync refers to the time-bound nature of the work, enabling visitors online and IRL to experience the work through a shared temporal frame.
Colour Time Generative draws the spectrum of Colour Time Sync into a gradient, and invites the audience to divide the spectrum into individual works. As editions are purchased, the gradient widens and each work shifts. The prints presented are hypothetical compositions, with the final divisions determined by the market as co-creator.
Also on display are four Colour Time studies created during a motorcycle trip from Montreal to Los Angeles. Each titled after the location in which they were created, these works are abstract representations of the artist's experience on the road, and propose Colour Time as a method of capturing immaterial affect.
As a body of work, Colour Time draws inspiration from the seminal colour works of Joseph Albers, the light installations of James Turell, and the op-art of Bridget Riley. Working within the frame of the everyday digital display, these works seek to stimulate the process of visual perception, inducing a state where the unconscious of the artist and viewer can meet.
Verse Live will take place at Frieze No.9 Cork Street from 28 September - 1 October (10am - 6pm.)
