Four Dimensional Colour dot-art gallery poster

Four-Dimensional Colour

Saturday 10 – Saturday 24 September

On Saturday 10th September, dot-art will launch a special two week exhibition by Ali Barker as part of the Liverpool #BiennialFringe. The solo show, entitled Four-Dimensional Colour, consists of a series of paintings inspired by the artist’s synaesthesia, a condition where senses are triggered by one another and allow the artist to hear colours. This unique perspective will be demonstrated through the daily painting of two ongoing works over the course of the exhibition.

This exhibition will showcase new paintings made between January and August 2016, comprising a set of “instinctive synaesthetic responses” to music and another set representing sounds translated into colours.

Since the start of 2016, artist and musician Ali has recorded a distinctive sound each day. Whether this is a musical note, a door-bell, a car horn in the distance or the rumbling of a coffee machine, each sound has then been translated into a small block of colour and added to her ever-growing portfolio of artwork.

For each month of 2016 she is composing one painting to represent the music and sounds she experiences, as a grid of coloured squares based on the layout of a calendar. Finally, she will also make a similar, but larger painting comprising all 366 notes and sounds recorded in 2016. This, and the painting of “September 2016”, will be works in progress at the time of the exhibition.

The solo exhibition will last for 2 weeks only so pop it in your diary and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Dear Liverpool

12th February – 23rd April

The first exhibition in dot-art’s new gallery showcases the work of 18 artist members and is designed to be a love letter to the cultural capital of the North, and perfectly summarises Liverpool’s energy and vibrancy. While there are some familiar scenes on show, several artists have chosen to represent the city in abstract or unexpected ways and it is abundantly clear from the diversity and quality of the work in the exhibition how much our city’s architecture, culture and people influence our creative community. All the artwork is for sale, with prices ranging from £25 -£2500.
