Color, Light & Form

Color, Light & Form are essential elements of art. The shade of a color can affect your mood, the brilliance of its light can catch your eye, and the shape or form of the subject can define the space of both what is being depicted, and of its surroundings. All of these properties can affect the viewer’s spiritual and physical relationship to an artwork. The works in this exhibition were drawn from the Museum’s post-1980 collection of contemporary art by California-based artists, and were selected to illustrate the diverse ways in which artists can utilize these aspects of art and design to engage the viewer through a contemporary lens.
