Can you imagine if the world was black and white? No, neither can we! Colour has the ability to tap into our emotions both evocatively and intuitively. Phrases like: ‘feeling blue’, ‘seeing red’ and ‘tickled pink’ all arouse a sense that would be lost without their hue. Artist Katie Eraser understands what colour can conjure, and it is both literally and figuratively at the heart of her work.
Eraser’s abstracted, curved shapes and bending planes of colour demonstrate why scarf label, One of Twelve wanted to collaborate with her. With titles such as ‘Hahaha. Seriously!’ and ‘Oh huni, it was so good to chat’, the scarves evoke relatable everyday experiences with just a hint of tongue-in-cheek. Wonderfully warm and inviting, these pure silk twill wares explore the rapport between us and the image, creating a colourful cocoon that can be worn around the neck, shoulders and as a turban of course!
Colour captures. Colour invites. Colour stimulates. Colour is a celebration of humanity in all its imperfect splendour.
