SPICE OF EARTH 2017-2018
The yellow colour attracts me; the warm tone, vividness and calmness of it. I like to think, that is because I come from a southern country, where the bright light and dryness of the long summers create a yellow glow over the sunburned land and contrast the blue of the sea and the sky.
I found that tone of yellow I'm writing about in the spice of turmeric and used it in many different ways; as dust, paint or liquid and also in combination with other natural materials.
A very characteristic element of this particular spice is the smell which reveals it natural identity and brings the final picture in life as it asks from the viewer to -also- use his/her sense of smell, a -not that frequent used- sense in the arts.
