RED: Exhibition view

RED explores the nuances of the colour red on red textures and surfaces. The exhibition accompanies the British Library touring exhibition CHINESE and BRITISH that celebrates the history and legacy of the vibrant Chinese community in the UK.

It was a very liberating experience to work with colour. In my work I do not use colours, unless my exploration is about colours. Working with a limited palette and being restricted to shades, tones and tint of red was a great way to explore how far one hue can be stretched and still be referred to by its colour name.
It was strangely freeing and fun to work within these strict parameters: I really enjoyed that I did not have to justify my decisions. It was interesting too that in being concealed, the wood became a less relevant material which gave the work a complete different feel and possibly making it more pertinent to my ongoing exploration of reality. Food for thought!! 🙂
