Modern Colour

Neon, fluor, screen, lights
Colours that are temporary
Colours that you switch on and off

Colour is always changing because colour is light.
Light is always in a state of flux.
Not Heavenly light, the spiritual
But light as particles
Light as waves
Light as universal law

The absence of light means darkness
But not necessarily black
The colour going out

White does the same

Colour ideas for paint-heads

(Ramble alert)
I've been reading David Batchelor's Chromophobia and it confirmed a lot of things I've been thinking about in terms of colour and painting.

Process process process

Here are a few images of my current work in progress. What I find interesting with these "black" paintings is that I can turn down the light. I'm not able to do that with the cellophane works because the material is too reflective. It would be interesting to see them in dialogue with each other in a large and properly lit space.
