Colour Me Happy
Colour Me Happy is the first solo exhibition by Anita Revel. 1 feb – 31 March 2016 at the Cocoon Gallery, Margaret River. Many people, when asked to describe a colour, will use its name or liken it to an object. I tend to describe colour in terms of feeling. I sit different colours next to each other to evoke emotion — from happiness and playfulness to melancholy and mystery. I overlay these feelings with pattern that represents our social fabric — look beyond the rules and structure to find true feelings lurking beneath. Behind the face we present to the world, we are beings exploding with a palette of feelings as rich and vast as the entire colour spectrum.
