Morph is a series of small-scale acrylic paintings that use a restricted palette of ten colours and a dotting technique to create atmospheric colour effects. Cat Mueller employs this construct to explore the possibilities of colour relationships by subtracting colours to demonstrate how changes in tone affect the overall mood of the painting. Throughout the series, opposing dotted gradients confined to geometric zones reveal themselves at a distance. Every work has small variations that mutate from the previous painting, each emitting their own otherworldly light source.
