Do you perceive colour
the same way
that everyone else does?

Why do we perceive
more variations of green
than any other colour?

(Chicago — 30 May 2018) Framestore Chicago announced plans to host an “An Evening #InColour” at its Greektown space on June 7.

The informative and communal occasion will include “colour experiments, art projects, introductions to Framerstore’s US Colour Team (Beau Leon, Edwin Metternich, and Maria Carretero), and a lecture by highly awarded and acclaimed artist, Judy Ledgerwood,” according to a press release issued today.

Ledgerwood, who is also a Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in Northwestern University’s Department of Art Theory and Practice, has held solo exhibitions around the world at places like the Rhona Hoffman Gallery in Chicago, the Hausler Contemporary in Germany, Tracy Williams Ltd. in New York, and the Hausler Contemporary in Austria.

Regarding her work, she says, “I try to make paintings that not only breathe in the after-image created by visual color interactions that flicker visually, but allow the performative act of painting to create a sense of time, especially through repetitive patterns.”

Framestore also plans to showcase the work of their Chicago artists and transform certain parts of the office into distinctive color environments for the event.

“An Evening #InColour” is the June edition of the Framestore EFFECT, a customized program hosted by Framestore.
