Measuring Margate Pier (JMW Tuner)
Edition of 1
Drawing with Screenprint
134 cm x 127.5 cm
Measuring Margate was created specifically in response to my solo exhibition at the Pie Factory in Margate, an event which coincided with the opening of the new Turner Gallery. Turner‘s iconic picture of Boats at Margate Pier is explored largely through colour.
Taking from Turner his emphasis on colour theory and the centre of the image, I started with primaries mixed to create colour wheel, moving outwards with ‘happy’ and ‘sad ‘colours in an exploding chart of the image.
