Ochra et Nigreos
May 13 @ 10:00 am - May 30 @ 4:30 pm
Ochra et Nigreos is an artistic residency that celebrates the colours, timbres and hues that have resonated in Joyce Camilleri’s artistic practice for the past two years. Ochres and blacks are in fact the two starring elements that were overtly auditioned and thoughtfully selected to impart my visual narrative of line and form on an otherwise empty space. Nigreos appears in the first act with its bold velvety blacks that wander along the surface of the paper, setting a veil of darkness on the underlying white surface. And yet there are spaces that are forbidden to Nigreos; space that crave a warm golden light and the raw pigments of the earth, Ochra.
This rather poetic verbal depiction of the impetus behind this artistic residency is grounded in the artist’s timeless fascination for the materials, media and techniques employed; a renewed artistic practice characterised by constant redirection and a visual language that values the creative process, regardless of pre-set concepts, ideologies and subject-matter. Drawing and printmaking methods merge into a hybrid that embodies the process of research into a purely aesthetic experience that honours the relationship between idea and method.
This artistic residency is taking place in the Community Space at Muza which will be open for the public from Thursdays to Sundays between 09:00 and 17:00 as from the 13th May 2021.
