Bartha Contemporary is proud to announce Adam Barker-Mill’s first solo-exhibition with the gallery. Entitled Metacolour, the show will feature recent light-installations and watercolours and explore the metaphysical experience of light and colour. A monograph, documenting the life and work of this multi-talented British artist, will accompany the exhibition.  

Adam Barker-Mill’s (b. 1940 Somerset, lives and works in London & Southampton) works examine the physical and experimental properties of light, an interest, which originated from his childhood fascination with the caves located near his home in Somerset. His latest installations revisit the artist’s concern for colour in light, an element with which Barker-Mill began working on in the sixties.  
Deceptively simplistic in appearance, these installations allow the viewer to maintain an idealistic visual, acutely unaware of the carefully structured designs, which generate, manipulate and modulate light.  
Each work appears to be in a constant state of transition, as the sequentially arranged and looped works shift from colour-space to colour-space. Devoid of any literal meaning, beginning or end the works remain suspended in a heightened state of awareness, which invite the viewer to briefly remove themselves from their own everyday existence and enter into an intimate and uninterrupted colour experience. 

A selection of recent watercolours, juxtaposed alongside some earlier watercolour studies will complete the exhibition. In particular his latest works on paper display the artist’s unmistakable sense for colour, space and light. Conceived through a systematic methodology akin with his light-installations, the precisely placed bands of colour describe the shift from one tone or colour to another.
