Colour is the most important non-verbal communication.

John Gage, Colour and Culture.

Virginia Bodman uses colour and the erotics of paint to create an all-female cast of characters whose dress hints at a variety of meanings and possibilities. The figures act out obscure dramas in spaces that hint at the exotic, the domestic and the dislocated.  The figures are drawn from a range of historic and contemporary sources and appear in scenarios with uncertain outcomes. These shifts of figure, dress and spatial behavior will make you ask, “What’s going on here”
