The Shape of Color
I sought out several different pigment and natural color teachers (Jason Logan, Heidi Gustafson, Sasha Duerr, and Judi Pettite) to expand my understanding of the sources of color, and understand how they relate to place and time. Time is an element of color: plant colors are fugitive (meaning they will fade), while earth pigments and minerals are some of the most stable colors on the planet. Both are records of specific places. I study these various properties through shape and mark-making.
