REMARKS ON COLOR series

What's in a name? In this body of work, I drew on color systems from dozens of paint companies. Each name is metaphor, poetry written by commerce. A particular blue called “Forever.” Another called “The Blues.” Already metaphor is hard at work. It’s poetry written by commerce.
