'Colour Theory' paints a picture of the heart behind Indigenous art
Indigenous creativity set for spotlight as second series gears up for TV screens.

SYDNEY.- A sensory feast of storytelling and Indigenous creativity is set for the small screen when the second series of COLOUR THEORY hits NITV (Channel 34 Free to Air) on Wednesday 05 March 2014 at 8pm as part of their autumn program line-up.

Art and culture come together in this four part series that goes behind the scenes into the communities of some of the new faces on the Indigenous art landscape to find out what makes them tick.

Provocative artist, political activist and Colour Theory host Richard Bell, travels to the ancestral homelands of four artists across the east coast of Australia, looking at how country and culture inspire their modern form of art, and documenting their creative processes from inception through to production and exhibition.

With each half hour episode, Bell introduces us to a new artist and their creative journey, and cultural influences as they develop a major work that helps place them in the Art landscape in bold statements as they develop and grow as artists in this country.

COLOUR THEORY’S writer and associate producer Hetti Perkins says that in addition to the creative process, the series will explore the diverse and often spectacular natural landscapes that influence each artist.

“Many of the artists we followed are from regional Australia and you can definitely see their upbringing reflected in their works.” she says.

“To truly understand what each work means to the artist, and to others, we felt it was important to travel with each of them and immerse ourselves in the physical and cultural environments that have shaped their worldviews.”

“Audiences will watch us hunt, paint and dance with the artists in lush beautiful locations across Queensland and in the North Western New South Wales, with spectacular footage of canyons, rivers, bush, desert, oceans and cities featuring throughout.”

A full showcase of shades, textures and mediums will be explored in COLOUR THEORY’S second season. From paint, sculpture, textiles, weaving, new media, photo media, printmaking, installation and performance to dance and design.

COLOUR THEORY’S featured up-and-comers Include proppaNOW Collective artist Megan Cope, Sydney-born Yuwaalaraay designer Lucy Simpson, Cairns-based artist and printmaker Teho Ropeyarn, and Central Queensland native Dale Harding.

“The whole point of COLOUR THEORY is to show these cultural trailblazers in their element. We want to take audiences on a journey into the lives of these artists as well as their works – to uncover who they are; their stories, histories, inspirations and methods.” says Perkins.

“There is an incredible range of Indigenous artistic expression out there, much of which has had very little exposure nationally. This season of COLOUR THEORY aims to build upon the success of the first series, to take more of the nation’s best up-and-coming Indigenous artists – and their communities – into the living rooms of everyday Australians.” she says.

In addition to Bell and Perkins, the series is backed by a stellar production team comprising some of Australia’s leading creatives including Aboriginal Producer Mitchell Stanley, James Falconer Marshall (Director) and Simon Smith (Director of Photography).

The first series of COLOUR THEORY debuted in April 2013 on the SBS network and went on to be distributed internationally in New Zealand. The program was well-received by critics, receiving special mentions and favourable reviews in The Australian, Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.
