Im back doing one of my favourite things.
And his time it's through the red spectrum -
which is not a place I usually gravitate toward.
But there is something alluring about it.
I love its intensity, its warmth, its resonance with nature.
For me red means Earth - the base and grounding of all things.
Its a beautiful colour to find in nature - from the changing of the leaves in the Autumn trees, to the rich ochre's that the Indigenous peoples use to paint and mark themselves and their artworks with.
There are a lot of books written about red - and its meaning within different cultures around the globe. From lust, love, celebration, marriage, religion and revolution.
It truly is a colour with many interpretations and resonances.
From now until February Ill be dreaming, playing and getting by hands dirty with red pigment for a new exhibition project that opens in early March.
This will be interesting....
