The Easel

Colour is

How does colour work in art and how important is it? These issues are explored in a London show, reviewed in the linked piece. But perhaps more intriguing is the introduction to the book that inspired the show. “[T]he problem of colour is often its unreliability, its seeming randomness and its apparent autonomy. While almost always connected to objects, colour nevertheless doesn’t seem quite to belong to these objects.”
