In Latin, chroma defines colour, yet in Damien Butler's exhibition, the term is returned to its ancient Greek origins where chroma refers to the shell or visible skin of an object. Here Butler explores the ancient Greek etymology of chroma by emphasising the complexion of an object in relation to its surface. Through these works, the viewer is positioned to use the work as an instrument to reconfigure the environment around them.

Chroma is Butler’s first exhibition with Martin Browne Contemporary.
