The Abstracted View

Upcoming Exhibition: The Abstracted View

January 8 – March 5, 2021

Linda Raudonus, Geoffrey Lee, Jon Foxton, Robert Bell, Tom Mackie and Jon Koury are members of “The Colour Collective”, a group of painters within the PotteryWorks collective of artists.

The Colour Collective has been in existence for over nineteen years and these six artists have been integral participants for most of that time, using the opportunity to express themselves on canvas.

As artists overcoming disability through the practice of art, they have used the medium as a platform to integrate with their community and be recognized as contributors to it. The development of their skill is therapeutic, contributing to improved hand eye coordination and concentration but the improvement in their self- esteem is the most important benefit.

The power of the painted image is historic in our culture, so for artists on the Autism Spectrum or other disabilities to express their view through Abstraction is transformative. Each of these six artists has a unique view to offer us, an expression of their experience and communication with us.
