I first started looking at colour pigment in second year and was particularly interested in how the colour of the sky during the day changed due to the light in the sky.
In my first gap crit I then started look at working with light to represent light itself. In stead of painting the effects of light mixing why don’t I just mix light itself.
Videos on how coloured light interacts with objects along side possible exhibition ideas set-ups and prototypes.
My second Gap Crit. Choosing whether large or small scale would be more successful for degree show showing both large and small scale work and trying to make a decision about what would be more successful. Also documentation of coding.
Choosing that simplicity may be the key to represent colours in contrast. The making of the boxes and how they are going to be used in the show.
Chromophobia and David Batchelor. Here I became interested in how colour is secondary to the primary of form and how colour in the west at least is seen as something to either be afraid of or not even considered seriously.
James Turrell. How within his works he manages to fill rooms with colour totally immersing the audience but also creating voids and an illusion of space and movement.
Looking into optical illusions and op-art and how the combination of colour and colours in contrast can create illusion. Also how the eye learns to see colour where there isn’t any.
Beau Lotto. Looking into how the brain and the eye actually sees colour Lotto is a neuro scientist who looks at ideas from Chevrul and ideas on colour constancy and colour correction.
