Metallic Touches

At Crescent Hill Gallery, many of our artists like to experiment in the studio and metallic colours such as gold, bronze and silver continue to make their way into their work. Metallics offer a richness and complexity to the compositions. Their reflective nature energizes the pieces and creates movement as the viewer’s perspective changes.

This builds a connection and sense of interaction with the viewer. The inclusion of metallics references art history as well as the human relationship with these coveted elements. Metallics endeavour to imbue contemporary artwork with the attributes of the ethereal, giving them the appearance of gilded relics.

This online exhibition features a curated selection of artwork speaking to these relationships and to the visually dynamic way in which metallics enrich a composition.
