#AsSeenInPrint: Joyful Contrast

Every colour has a story to tell. The pigment Verdigris,
for example, occurs naturally on copper, bronze and brass. Its
use in the arts can be traced from antiquity through to the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque periods, and, according to The Anatomy of Colour (Thames & Hudson, 2017), it was deemed "the best and most useful green of all others" in the 1600s – despite its blue tint and poisonous nature. Chrome Yellow, meanwhile, was discovered by a French chemist during the 1790s. Within 50
years, it became "almost the only bright yellow in use."
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The colour remains popular today; the millennium saw 90,000 tons produced annually and it had acquired hex code #FFA700. These
two shades can be found across Dublin-based Sarah Doyle’s body
of work, which plays with harmonies of contrast. Torn paper, wooden sticks and cut-out circles pop against block-painted backgrounds, whilst figures shade their eyes from an artificial sun.
