  • Angela Creaser exposes intricate curves inside a marble in “Vortex.”

Playing with marbles has never been so much fun. Angela Creaser's Gathering Colour is a smorgasbord of visual delight. In her first solo exhibition, Creaser manages to capture the glorious beauty of bright, vibrant colour. Using macro and micro lenses, Creaser photographed marbles to expose the intricate curves, bubbles and angles hidden within the objects. The magnified prints show all the details. In "Philip's Gold," the subtle shades of flaked gold are in view and the bubbles are visible on the dark blue hues in "Glacier." Many of the photos resemble everyday objects. See the flowers bloom in "Koi," where green circles are surrounded by red ink, which resemble petals. "Topography" is a map of mountainous terrain with a blue river cutting through the brown rock. There's the playful side as well. "Kaleidoscope" is a vortex of colour swirling rapidly. Try not to get dizzy.
