CHROMA: Flanders Art Gallery

CHROMA:  MIA YOON  -  DEREK TOOMES  -  ANI HOOVER

Dec. 02, 2011 – Jan. 21, 2012

Derek Toomes - FoolWhen finalizing an exhibition concept to unite the works of Mia Yoon, Derek Toomes, and Ani Hoover, Flanders Gallery pondered the significance of the word “chroma.” While its Greek roots refer to something as basic – and, in the visual arts, necessary – as the qualities of color, it has another denotation as the color component in television signals. This dual meaning, blending both the essential elements described by ancient civilizations and the scientific progress of modern-day man, seemed particularly representative of the spirit of the exhibition’s selected works. CHROMA brings together the styles of these three artists who start by using color to broach technological discussions in a contemporary age.
