Local Colour

Cover of Local Colour

Artlink is such a wonderful creative publication, it’s certainly my favourite. I am an emerging artist and find it a constant source of inspiration. The up to date contemporary views of the Australian art landscape are always so fresh and supportive of our local talent. Thank you for all your hard work and such a consistently exceptional publication.

Current Issue | Issue 39:1 | March 2019

This issue privileges ideas of local colour as a provocative surface tension, embodying diverse perspectives and materialities. It samples the practices of artists who work with colour and colour values in response to the environment, social life, colour as it comes readymade in a tube, a tin, a colour chart. Reframing or recalibrating the spectrum to embrace multinatural, therapeutic, feminist, queer, Indigenous and other perspectives, colour is here deployed in all its richness and variety to open up further art-historical and culturally specific terms of reference
