"Colorada" is the fourth in a series of collaborations between Rachel Bernsen and Megan Craig. “Colorada” expresses redness, an act of coloring, dying or painting, or blushing. It indicates the difference between process and product, underscoring nature of color and color experience. Evolving from a series of conversations about color, ambiguity, and emotion, Colorada is a performance and installation piece featuring both Bernsen and Craig that employs movement, assemblage, and collage to explore the fluidity and psychophysical/material dimensionality of reddening and the color red.
Ten years have passed since Megan Craig (1975, USA) presented at the Kunstverein Bentheim for her first international solo exhibition. Now the painter and philosophy teacher showcases her work, "Rose Sings," a compilation of abstract paintings created over the past few years. Megan Craig was inspired by Gertrude Stein's, The World is Round, for the title of this exhibition. Stein, known as the "mother of the avant-garde," wrote the children's book in the 1930s.
