Colours interest me on many levels. The pursuit of beauty, to be sure, employs colour as does signalling and instruction and an array of human interactions. We have sport, religion, politics and ethniticity that connect themselves with certain colours to gather mass and strength. Weaved in with our use of colour is always a narrative. Colour is used by people, and people's action has reasons. Life demands action and civilization as we know it is the accumulation of human activity. Through it all, however, colour remain ultimately a neutral player, nothing more than a certain wavelength picked up by the optical nerves in the eye.
