Monochrome Muse (exhibition announcement) Monochrome Muse is the title to Henry Alamango's tenth solo art-exhibition. Like most of the previous editions, this event is being hosted by the Ministry for Gozo Culture Section at the Banca Giuratale in Victoria, Gozo, from the 1st to the 22nd September, 2012. Monochrome Muse is an attempt at viewing what are otherwise mundane urban, country and coastal scenes through a very much reduced colour palette, often resulting in an “abstraction” of colour to pure monochrome. Monochromes in brown, greys and blues dominate the collection, but these are often touched up with a different colour to focus attention to particular details. The monochromatic treatment, in turn, lends serenity to Henry's paintings, a quality with which he is now closely associated. This technique also enhances the interpretation of the subject in terms of nuances of light and shade, uncluttered by the distractions of multiple colours.
