Indigo Is
Measureless
as the Uniform
Blue-Black of
the Deep Pacific
2020
Die Chromatika is a new psychological theory of colour for the 21st Century, created by the artist in response to Goethe's 'Theory of Colours' and Rudolf Steiner's writings on colour.

Of indigo the artist wrote: I once found an odd little book called 'The Blue of Capricorn' in an antiquarian bookshop.
It described the vast waters of the Pacific's Kuroshio Current as 'a deep uniform indigo, almost black, colour.'

To me this captures indigo's true nature - the colour of the unthinkable depths of the sea, the colour of profound measurelessness.
