Colours cannot describe emotions the way monochrome does!
"The ancient Chinese got their ink from smoky oil lamps, brushing away deposited soot and mixing it into a paste that hardened into "stones". This black was pure, indelible and did not fade, and they fell in love with it. They used it not only for writing but for painting, which they saw as just another way to express their thoughts...."
An exceptional story - very elegantly curated at "The Dark Matters' in Sydney's White Rabbit Gallery . If you are in Sydney this is something not to be missed. Probably one of the top 3 contemporary exhibitions I have seen in Sydney to date! Big call. Yep. I just said it. The exhibition closes on 31st of July 2017. Two weeks to go!
DO NOT MISS IT!
