Rose Quartz & Serenity

“Rose Quartz & Serenity” by Szilvia Bolla was conceived in response to Pantone’s increasingly marketed and mediatised 2016 Colour of the Year campaign, and informed by The Propaganda of Pantone: Colour and Subcultural Sublimation, an essay by Kevin Yuen Kit Lo. The palette of Pantone Rose Quartz and Serenity is expanded through photographic processes and the nature of their components: photo-chemicals, bitmaps, the fluidity of the image and its substrate. The installation offers a critique on constructed colour aesthetics, image reproduction as an attempt to challenge theoretical and physical aspects of the photographic image.
