THINKING

Surrounds

Extracting colour from the everyday.

This exploratory project examines the relationship between colour and subject matter, between the abstract and pictorial, and between form and meaning. From a portfolio of incidental photos, each “surround” was created by isolating a line of pixels in the photograph and “dragging” them across the picture plane. The resulting stripes were then configured in a roundel and superimposed onto the original image.
