"For Relax and Dance, Fraser has created new works specifically made for the Suttie Art Space.
Built up of layered monochromatic images, his first work stacks transparent films to create colour ‘screens’ directly on the Galleries windows.
Despite using just the subtractive primaries Cyan Magenta and Yellow, complex spectral compositions are made as layers overlap to create new colours and patterns on intersection. Further illusion of colour depth is created internally, taking advantage of the human eye’s tendency to “mix” two colours in close proximity to one another. At a suitable distance these works would create a full colour image in the eye of the viewer. However, Fraser has blown-up and modified these processes almost to the point of non-function, revealing the normally hidden coding within the image to the viewer. like a low resolution file, the embedded patterning disrupts any attempt at a literal reading of the image. Instead, through its placement and transparency, these images seem to impart these mechanical codings as an overlay onto the outside world. "
