This new exhibition by artist Noelle Genevier from CPP Hounslow’s Visual Arts Programme explores colour and nature through contemporary collage.
Noelle Genevier’s work starts with colour and material; folded paper and photographs that combine in her collages to create new worlds of ideas.
These collages take two forms; the digitally created, flat patterns, and the more organic handmade three-dimensional assemblages. These forms echo Noelle’s interest in the environment, both urban and natural, coming together at a threshold of shifts and changes.
Much like Hounslow’s environment that touches the city at one edge, and countryside at its other, this work explains our surroundings through connected and contrasting imagery.
The connections that can be found between the images are many, limitless, even. Colour, pattern, shape and subject intertwine together, eliminating boundaries and forging new connections. The way that things are connected, interdependent in interlocking networks draws our attention to the ecology of our environment, reminding us that humanity and nature rely on each other for survival.
The work is informed by ecologist Jane Bennett’s theory of ‘Vibrant Matter’, that everything is interconnected. Our world, whether microscopic lifeforms, or stars reaching light years across, become significant, if we choose to look and ponder with a deep curiosity.
Book Tickets: The exhibition will be on display at Feltham Library from 19 June 2021.
