The colours - Green

Between yellow and blue, green has the widest distinguishable range of colours. It can quite take on many different forms depending upon how yellow or blue it is. Although of medium brightness, green is the most viable of colours to the human eye. - at low light levels of illumination, we can see better by green light than any other wavelength.


Green is the key colour of nature, and its associations and symbolism derive principally with this. Plants are green therefore it is the colour of growth and by association it is a positive colour - with suggestions of hope and progress. For the same reasons, yellow - green has spring like associations of youth .


The Equivalence works, a series of pigment prints/ charcoal drawings used green black as a dominant visual strategy.
