Colour from Black, ongoing long-term series from, “The Quiet,” started when I began to revisit the moorland landscape from my childhood and work in natural light again. Based on Goethe’s colour theory on the refraction of light from Black, the series explores the interrelationship with Nature: The connection of place with memory, impressions of childhood perception of Beauty in response to landscape, flora and fauna.
