‘Fluro’ is a duo of new fluorescent paintings by Charlotte Formosa. Visit in the daytime to view the artworks in full colour under white light. Visit in the evening to see the paintings come to life with glowing ultraviolet colour.
My work is informed by my research on the use of ultraviolet materials in contemporary underground subcultures, despite the medium’s frequent dismissal as a relic of the 1970s.
My work brings ultraviolet back into a gallery space. These paintings and illustrations feature intricate geometric patterns in bold, garish colours. In these ultraviolet pieces, the aim is to mesmerise the viewer using unusual lighting effects. By combining fluorescent paint with non-reactive acrylic paint, the depth of the artwork appears altered with some planes of colour seeming to float in front of others on the canvas.
A cabinet full of wearable UV art will also be on display for sale!
