The Colour Red

2010 – present

Red is a heavily symbolic colour and one with a very paradoxical nature and association. This is what interests me along with the power and dominance of the colour visually, the contrast between a touch of red and an abundance of red. It is the colour of blood, it has strong references to war and destruction, in terms of Christian iconography the colour of the crucification and martyrs. On the flipside it is the colour associated with love, passion, warmth and prosperity.

This collection explores the colours sensual, dramatic and visual qualities progressing from 1% red to 100% red.
