"Fugitive Color I"

A lifelong interest in plants led local artist Cornelia White Swann away from synthetic materials to experiment with making her own paints from natural substances. Named after a term used to describe impermanent pigments, her abstract painting series "Fugitive Color" owes some of its organic charm to such unusual suspects as purple cabbage, blueberries, red onions and hibiscus flowers. All created within the last six months, her ethereal new works on paper have an intriguing relationship with time: Not only do their integral components reflect the seasons, their colors shift and fade with age due to the “fugitive” nature of the pigments. Curated by Celeste Wackenhut, Swann’s solo exhibition at French & Michigan is divided into two related presentations, the second of which is set for spring of 2016. Free, 2-5pm Sat, French & Michigan Gallery, 115 Michigan, 378-0961, frenchandmichigan.com. — BR
