My new series is an exploration of colour. From the standpoint of its derivation/definition, photography (writing with light) in its essence is all about capturing light, either bouncing off of or being absorbed by an object. This phenomena produces colour. The iconography of and expression through colour leads down many roads; the emotional, psychological, the spiritual and the sublime, as well as its many practical, utilitarian applications. Colour has been scientifically defined and explained. It’s been studied by psychologists and advertising people in an effort to discover its ability to manipulate emotions and compel behaviour. Artists have been observing and experimenting with colour…, well, for as long as there have been artists.
