Gitte Moller's Images from Ecuador at Gallery 33

When television and movies originally introduced the concept of "technicolour", people were astounded. Likewise, Gitte Moller's exhibition Images from Ecuador amazed me with its vibrance and striking qualities.

Being born in Denmark and raised in Australia, Hong Kong, and London, Moller now abides in Ecuador, where she finds most of her inspiration. Moller's eclectic life is apparent in her mixed media presentation which she calls "photo-paintings". The process of taking black and white photography and hand colouring with several glazes of transparent oil paint is unique and almost surreal.

In the works, the stark contrast between colour and black is dramatic. There is a simple portrait of pears in a bowl that seems to radiate light and colour. Moller's five self portraits included each beautifully tell of different journeys and emotions.

This exhibit is simple, yet fascinating. Moller gives new life to colours and brings whatever the composition she has chosen to life.

• Monday-Friday 10am-5pm until Wednesday 26 February at 33 Swan Street. • T 020 7407 8668
