THE EXHIBITION

Color can change a viewer's perception of practically anything. It impacts emotion, context, narrative, and one's personal psychological response. This juried exhibition explores not just the colors in artwork, but the entire color palette used to accentuate the concept of the work. In focusing on one specific element of design, Arbitrary Color challenges the artist in their execution of all principles and elements of art design.

juror

Albert Yowshien Kuo is an artist currently living and working in St. Louis, Missouri. He teaches as an adjunct professor for the St. Louis Community Colleges at Florissant Valley and Meramec, and Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville and Granite City. Kuo also teaches classes at the Schmidt Art Center in Belleville and St. Louis Artists Guild.  Mr. Kuo grew up between Taiwan and St. Louis in an environment where his artistic interests were encouraged from a young age. “All I’ve ever known was that art in some form would be the guiding force in my life,” he said.

Outside of his career as an instructor, Kuo has a regular practice in his studio developing his own work and participating in exhibitions, most notably the last two years at Hoffman LaChance Contemporary in St. Louis. He works primarily as a painter but expands his work into sculptural and functional objects. Mr. Kuo received his MFA in painting from Fontbonne University with his thesis work focused in Bauhaus, Suprematism, De Stijl, American abstract expressionism, architecture, and industrial design. “Color is so important, the sensitivity we have towards the range should not go unnoticed. It has an effect on our emotions and physical senses, like music.”
