Cathy Lightfoot's Sensation of Color

In 2013, Cathy Lightfoot, Adjunct Associate Professor, started an informal exploration of color relationships in her sketchbook. A painter, Lightfoot used the series of informal gouache exercises to explore color gradations, and color relationships that appear to generate light energy. The project grew into a focused and systematic investigation numbering over 120 gouache paintings that she intended to arrange in combinations for use when planning her larger paintings.
