Pamela Fraser: Character Development
McAninch Arts Center at College of DuPage
Glen Ellyn, IL
January 20- February 26, 2011
Opening January 20, 6-8 pm
Best known for her sparse use of bright colors in otherwise empty black or white backgrounds, Chicago artist Pamela Fraser takes color as her main subject and plays with the logic of established color systems. Fraser?s newest work continues a long-standing investigation inspired by her research in comparative color theory (from philosophy to perception to design to everyday use). With her resistance to the authority of any single convention, style, or visual code, Fraser examines the various ways that color operates and is operated on. Her approach explores the indefinable quality of color when it becomes detached from its meanings and inherited logic.
