Spring is here my friends… And if you can’t be certain because you just happened to gaze outside and caught a glimpse of rain, well then it is essential to get out and head down to the Beaverbrook Art Gallery to see that spring has sprung with the electrified exhibit Hot Pop Soup: Neo Pop Trends in Contemporary New Brunswick Art.

Hot Pop Soup: Neo-Pop Trends In Contemporary New Brunswick Art
April 26, 2012 – June 10, 2012
Inspired by Pop Art pioneers such as Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein and more, these bright colors are bravely mixed. So many electrified or acidized vegetal colors sometime stacked with neutrals to liven up any look.
Amazingly most of these pop colors are in polished and feminine style: the new equation for modern dressing and decor! From ladylike, fit and sexy, and free-form style, they are all fun, sophisticated and punching those classics. Elegant and simple-crisp design tones down the look, but funky and sculpted accessories create high/low contrasts.
Colors: acid green, vibrant emerald, bright berry, shocking rouge, fuchsia, high-voltage azure, rich camel, metallic gold.
Prints and patterns: bold graphics, geometric, artful patterns, color blocking.
