According to the French Fauvist painter, Raoul Duffy (1877 - 1953) "blue is the only color that holds onto its individuality in all its shades. Take the various tones of blue, from the darkest to the lightest and they will still be blue…."

Singing the Blues is an attempt by three artists, Beatriz Copello, Carmen Julia Henry and Janet Reinhardt, to examine this notion.  A wide variety of hues, tints, and shades of blue are explored through both abstract and semi abstract forms painted onto a range of surfaces in both acrylic and oil paint.  Cobalt, ultramarine, cerulean and pthalo blue are made to ‘sing’ through the introduction of a range of complementary and analogous colour enabling the various blues to vibrate on the surface.  

While each artist manipulates the paint in her own individual style, cohesion is maintained through the overarching qualities of the exhibition’s title colour.  

Yves Klein famously asked. “What is blue? concluding that, ‘Blue is the invisible becoming visible….’ These three artists aspire to make this popular colour more visible by exploring blue in all of its permutations.
