white on white.

Tuesday 7 June 2011

It's occurred to me that I've been posting a fair amount of hyper-coloured images. Whilst I love colour, traditionally I've tended toward the monochromatic.
Under the umbrella of my monochromatic love, is an interest in using white on white, where textural shifts, layering, a play with translucency and reflections of light are what make a project sing.

I could post a million images about this but I'll restrict myself to the work of two artists who I think embody this concept. I look at these images and I see the seed of an idea for creating architecture, textiles, interiors, jewellery etc.

Check out these yummy images from installation artists Tokujin Yoshioka and Tara Donovan. Extreme love!

It's also well worth checking out Tokyjin Yoshioka's website  and Ace Gallery website for more.
