Colour is our Obsession Gallery

This virtual gallery represents a group of Break-a-Brush Artists that aim to exhibit together in the immediate future. Should you have exhibition space in the Ottawa/Gatineau area we would love to hear from you! Please contact

Paintings are invariably more than they seem. Colours work together in practice in mystifying ways, defying even our most complete theories, mixing in the mind. Colour gives us the confidence to escape from tradition and develop new palettes, techniques and break rules with aplomb. Something clicked when we really started using colour: our paintings became those colours, whether bold, primary and solid, or just a hint to convey a feeling or alter emphasis. Colour changes everything.
