“One of my core recollections involves lying on the living room rug, night after night, pouring over the latest mail order catalogues. From them I learned about the link between colour and language. As a young girl growing up in the 1950s, I was thrilled to discover that twin sweater sets could be ordered in cherry red or peacock blue. Peacock blue – such an exotic name, such an electric colour! I informed my mother that I would simply die if I could not have a peacock blue sweater. I still clearly remember the page in the catalogue that featured the exquisite colours of cherry red and peacock blue. This was the inspiration for the image shown above, Catalogue.”
