Three days of intensive of drawing in order to address the theme of different ranges in the whole collection has brought up three ranges, flow, structure and support, using three colours, blue, red and green respectively
All the colours were chosen in part for their metaphysical meaning. Blue, for communication (throat chakra), red for the mulhadara – root of all support, and green for the heart, the structure of how we enter in relationship in the world.
Flow is my range; no work from the Coventry carers come into this. Blue also because it comes from Unit 10 colour uses.
Red: support. The imagery that was explained to me by the Carers was that red represented weddings. This is a material commitment between two people to support each other over a lifetime. Therefore red.
Green: structure. The carers were heavily influenced by the natural environment in their image-making. The primary imagery that came from the workshops was gardening and the sun.
This green highly stylized flower was very striking for it’s structure and seemed to represent the formality of a garden, hence it’s association with ‘structure’.
