It was hard to say whether or not my critique went well, only because it was more of a present-your-work-to-provoke-discussion than a finished piece that my peers and profs could critique. There were some interesting points raised, however.
More images of the install.
-look at Hella Jongerius "Colour Catchers"
-look at Mary Heilmann: infusing abstract with subject
-think about teals of different eras, lost dyes and pigments
-colour as a bracket of exploration
-reinject the now with old colour?
-presentation provides a narrative build, maybe too easy
-let's me off the hook but also lessen the impact of the painting
-let's the viewer off the hook too since they are being spoon fed
-explosion of process, a bit much
-control vs. loose
-measure of colour beauty
-self-conscious demonstration of working through the idea (prefer the autonomy of a painting)
-research of chronology of the hue
-"finding teal" presentation could be read as a narrative
-alternate presentation: book format of source imagery (I like this idea)
-Sarah Lucas "Yellow" 2015
