'Black. It is the darkest shade. The result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light. Black and white have been used to describe opposites; particularly truth and ignorance, good and evil, the "Dark Ages" versus Age of Enlightenment.

A symbolic colour of solemnity and authority. A colour of skin, mourning, secrets, magic, force, violence, evil, and elegance. This curated group exhibition involves artist's working largely in this achromatic colour. It seeks to suggest nothing more than the chosen palette of the artist at their time of creating.'
