Miles Hall Pigmentum MMXVI 23 Nov – 21 Dec 2016


MILES HALL

PIGMENTUM MMXVI

At the height of the Italian qua<rocento, the prosperity of Venice was considerably strengthened by the sale of oltremare de venecia (VeneGan overseas goods). Imported products such as pepper, ginger, nutmeg and cloves found themselves combined with local ingredients that re-invigorated culinary and medical tradiGons. Importantly, the trade of spices provided an entry point for arGsts’ pigments and the golden age of Italian painGng has a certain debt to the colours made from pigments that came from contacts established with eastern and middle-eastern civilisaGons. While we don’t know whether Piero della Francesca ever relished a sugo di carni from Bologna, seasoned with cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon, we are certain (via the analysis of his painGngs) that he had access to a diverse range of foreign pigments such as vermilion, verdigris, cinnabar, orpiment, azurite blue and the most famous pigment - ultramarine blue, made from imported lapis lazuli mined in what is today known as Afghanistan. Similar to the transmutaGons occurring in the kitchens of the Italian peninsula, Piero della Francesco incorporated foreign pigments with locally sourced materials such as yellow ochre, raw and burnt umber, vine black and red earth. More than five centuries later, Piero’s painGngs conGnue to touch us through their chromaGc beauty, formal elegance and economy of means. In this way the history of pigments is also the history of cultures, people, trade and the relaGons established between different socieGes. These small, modestly sized works enGtled PIGMENTUM MMXVI have found their inspiraGon through research into the history of the silk roads, augmented by a love for colour and the desire to bring pigments from diverse horizons into new configuraGons and visual dialogues. In a world that is increasingly characterised by the control of boarders, refugees, discriminaGon and intolerance, I hope that these painGngs, in their own small way, can celebrate the beauty of what can occur when disparate things collide.
