Agency of Light (Diptych)
Colour is not necessarily affiliated to the 'thing', although it is always associated with 'something'. Colour is an event, a phenomenon; an agency of light, rather than a substantial being. It is a process of 'becoming', not of 'being' - and insofar as it is 'becoming' it is 'nothing' or 'no-thing'. If colour, then, is 'nothing', is it possible to imagine the shadow of colour? This series of diptychs, consisting of a photograph and a photogram of the same colours created with a simultaneous exposure investigates this very question. Colour is a mysterious, intractable yet enthralling and intoxicating 'thing' or 'no-thing'.
