Olafur Eliasson: Turner colour experiments
© 2013 Olafur Eliasson
Olafur Eliasson, 'Colour experiment no.58', 2014

The Icelandic-Danish artist transforms the ephemeral qualities of JMW Turner’s paintings into colour wheels. Coinciding with Tate Britain’s Late Turner exhibition, this free display in the Clore galleries stems from Eliasson’s Colour Experiments series that started in 2009. Taking seven paintings by the British landscape artist, Eliasson condenses the intensity of Turner’s use of colour and light into beautiful abstractions.
