Trevor Mein’s cloud archive has expanded with the addition of a new series of work titled stratosphere.
In this upcoming exhibition at Otomys Contemporary, Mein’s palette shifts from light blue, white and a myriad of greys. Prussian blue, violet, saffron, pale pink and coal black enter the picture plane. The tonal shifts in some compositions allude to a seascape, as one becomes anchored by the suggestion of the horizon. Through the less abstracted works the viewer is transported back to the celestial sphere.
The cloudscapes in stratosphere capture both the ephemeral and delicate beauty that exists on Earth thus prompting the viewer to consider more seriously the tenuous balance and long-term future of our planet.Read More
