Cartographic Colour



Giles Revell’s forensic approach reveals the beauty and the complexity of nature. In Cartographic Colour he employs his method to examine the role that colour plays in our visual perception of the world around us. His subject is flowers, but flora here are used as a proxy for the real goal – a deeper understanding of the way we see colour revealed through the meticulous examination of its subject matter.

Cartographic Colour is divided in two.  A series of ‘palettes’ reinterpret the colours of well-known flowers, abstracted to eliminate the distraction of form. The second part of the project is concerned with the range of colour of flowers collected from the Wisley RHS garden one summer’s day in June.
Please note, The Gallery at Foyles will be closed 13.09.17 between 4pm – 9pm for a private event. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The Gallery at Foyles is curated and managed by Futurecity.

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles, Level 5, 107 Charing Cross Road
Free entry, no booking required.
