by Quincy Ellis of Facture
TONE uses Quincy’s own range of nude tones as his color palette to explore and reference color by not only playing with saturation, gradients, and depth but also his personal narrative.The forms and technical aspects serve to create a dialogue between the constantly fluctuating conception of subtle tones and the context in which they engage.
”This show is very personal to me. I wanted to challenge the perception of ‘nude tones’ with this work, so it's been more of an emotional process."
Using the same tones for all the pieces, perception of each contextually is central to the work, producing a palette of visual subtleties, relationships and tonal changes in each piece that emulate our own fluid interpretation and relationship with colors.
