7 February – 22 March 2014
Opening Thursday 6 February 2014, 7 – 9pm

An exhibition of new interior light works by acclaimed light artist Adam Barker-Mill, as part of SPECTRA: Aberdeen Festival of Light 2014.

Adam Barker-Mill’s works are deceptively simple and constructed with commonly found materials. The effect is subtle and surprising; distinctions of spatial perception or of colour may appear blurred. Is the circle flat or is it three-dimensional? Is the colour we see the actual colour or merely a retinal after-image? Awareness of such perceptual distortions, and of the conditions that bring them about, develops over the time of the viewing experience. A rigorous minimalistic approach succeeds in giving us an ethereal experience full of sumptuous colors where less is more.

The exhibition follows on from just-noticeable differences Part 1 at Laure Genillard Hanway Place, London – 25 January – 8 March 2014. A joint publication by Laure Genillard and Peacock Visual Arts will be published later in the year.


Adam Barker-Mill began his career as a lighting-cameraman in the film industry in the 1960s. He later moved on to create his own installations experimenting with light. He has held many exhibitions nationally and internationally including: The Pier Arts Centre Orkney (2009, 2007); i8 Reykjavik (2007); Inverleith House, Edinburgh (2005, 1997); MOMA, Osaka, Japan (2005); SAFN Reykjavik (2003), Trade Apartment, Brixton, London (1997); Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh (1996); ANTA Leuchten GmbH, Germany (1993); Victoria Miro Gallery, London (1992); Corridor Gallery, Reykjavik (1988); Arnolfini, Bristol (1985) and most recently a permanent light installation on top of a building in Notting Hill, London, as part of the Olympics and Diamond Jubilee year commissions.
