Colour Chart

Mulitfaceted Possibilities Of Colour

The work selected for this exhibition references the British Colour Council Dictionary of Colour Standards. A collaboration with poet Judith Willson has resulted in a collection of poems that reference the colours’ nomenclature. These can be seen alongside monochrome paintings that seek to reinterpret the colours. The colour chart is a format adopted by many artists in various ways. Colour charts came into use by the 1880’s as mass production of ready mixed paints came onto the market. Their design established a format that has not changed since that time, a set of individual units arranged in rows and columns. ‘Unlike that of the colour wheel, there is no logic to the sequences of colour ranges…it is a non-hierarchical list of colours.’ (ref Colour Chart - Reinventing Colour, 1950 to Today; MOMA; 2008)
