The artists in this exhibition use colour in an elemental way; colour is the subject, material and the primary medium of communication in the works.

Like the earliest photographers he passes light through objects or filter of oil or coloured water onto photosensitive paper. Miller investigates our most visceral perceptions of pure colour.
