Custom framed

“The palette that I created for this collection is deeply rooted in the colours of 1950s, colours that defined a decade and shaped a generation.

For each of my prints, I mixed custom colours to which I assigned unique names. My personal palette consists of the 80 colours seen in this collage. Here, I recorded each colour’s individualized name and sRGB value, thus providing an indexed colour chart of my early years. This colour-coded record of my childhood is as unique and indelible as my physical DNA.

I believe we are moulded by the colours that surrounded us in our formative years.”
