“I remember my parents painting the colourless walls of our rented bungalow. It was common in the 1950s for each bedroom to be a different pastel colour – mint green, baby blue, soft yellow. One of my core recollections involves endlessly pouring over house paint colour charts – very potent objects of memory. From them I learned about the link between colour and language. I was astonished to discover that the bright colour of the accent wall in our dark green living room was Chartreuse. Recently I found a vintage Kem Tone house paint advertisement featuring a picture of a living room painted Parklane Green with a Chartreuse accent wall. Clearly this had been the inspiration for my parents’ colour scheme decades ago; it was also the inspiration for my new work entitled Living Room.”
