Colour Reading and Contexture is a small city of colour and form that has been constructed from piles of sourced materials, in a variation of colours and sizes. The assorted mounds of objects range from old, unwanted library books, to tiles, to chocolate bars, to essentially any object with four corners. The items are layered together with relation to their shape, size and colour. Months of collective activity, sourcing and gathering on a local scale, are involved in the development of the work. This, together with the direct reference to Josef Alber’s theories relating to colour and scale, result in a work that speaks about place, history, collection and catagorisation, but also about how the viewer engages, and reads the world around them.
