Red part I, 2021
Collage / Installation
(1.50 x 6.50 m)
This installation is composed of 562 eight cm square magazine cutouts organised by colour and tone.
It is an investigation of “red” as a colour, concept and feeling, and the infinite ways in which red exists in line with Joseph Albers’ idea that “only by observing colour in the push and tug and pull of context can one begin to understand the nature of colour.”
It explores how each square image functions on its own, in relation to the others, and as a whole. It can be seen as a visual essay on my own conceptual associations that red has such as power, gender, human flesh, blood, nation, war, religion, sex, and both masculinity and femininity among others.
