The past couple of days I've picked a colour and set-up a still life around it. It seems fitting to show a collage from a series I did in 2008, that was based on colour in language. For each piece I explored terms of speech incorporating colours, and tried to portray the literal and figurative meaning in the collage. With this piece I didn't depict the figurative meaning (a bit tough) but you will find a herring coloured red, a penny (red cent), a red hand (caught red-handed) as well as red tape (and who's not familiar with that!).
