Of Rocks and Colors - BG
About this artwork
Artist Marie-Eve Champagne displays a metallic ore on a striking lilac background. The subject opposes the contrasting hue, putting each aspect on display. This series takes root in a profound love of minerals and their relationship to pigments, colors, and ultimately, painting. After all, once transformed into a paste, arenÕt colors just a bunch of crushed rocks on a surface? suggests Marie-Eve. She bases the piece on a photo of blende and galena taken at the NHM.
