January 2020: Kelp Orange

Considering this month’s Kelp Orange, in contrast with the ocean’s sandy grays, makes me marvel how our vision can present us with this evocative scene.

“We do not have direct access to the physical world. We may feel we have direct access, but this is an illusion created by our brain”.

September 2019: Cool Yellow

Patterns in graffiti often overpower the individual colors, but here strong black outlines frame and emphasize the wonderful interweave of acid pinks and yellows.

Dark painted details in a room can prompt us to see the glow in adjacent fields of lighter colors.

We have chosen the yellow for its express reference to the the often overlooked, sustaining energy of the sun.

June 2019: Cement

Urban dwellers often think of Nature as lakes and trees in the countryside, not underfoot in cities, but the mineral ingredients found in cement are as old and “natural” as our planet.

By contrasting this ubiquitous urban material with brightly colored octane ports, we are reminded of the hues and textures we see in other natural, but otherwise unnoticed pathways.
