From award-winners to international exhibitors, nine artists from major institutions all over the world have been hand-picked by Becca Pelly-Fry, Griffin Gallery Director, to showcase the breadth and variety of water-based colour, including ink, watercolour, acrylic and gouache. The nine artists in the show encompass a wide range of both conceptual concerns and techniques with water-based colour.

Watercolour is often seen as challenging, unpredictable and best suited to delicate landscape paintings, mainly due to its translucency and ability to portray light. These artists all exhibit great skill and dexterity with a medium that is difficult to master, each artist really using and making the most of its unique qualities to create fresh, exciting, and perhaps even surprising artwork.
