Kaleidoscope, Saatchi Gallery - FREE - ★★★★ - Until May 5, 2019


Another fascinating experience at the Saatchi! The first gallery houses Laura Buckley's immersive piece, "Fata Morgana." Walking into it offers an opportunity that opens one senses for the rest of this exhibition. Inside her kaleidoscope perceptions are sharpened and realities are questioned. This is a wonderful introduction to an exhibition that brings together ten artists who all challenge our eyes and their translation of the external world into images. Highlights for us were Pierre Carreau's photographs which present waves of water becoming waves of light and extend the theme of the show, as the complex refractions question our usual reading of natural phenomena through the play of light. In a more cerebral approach emphasizing the geometry and rhythms of perception, Tillman Kaiser's understated canvases make us consider how our eyes use these principles to organise our reality. In contrast, Florence Hutching's explores the values of colour as it informs and gives shape to our perceptions of the world. This exhibition works beautifully as a kaleidoscope separating and reuniting the components we use to order consciousness. It is not just to be seen but to be experienced.
