The lovechild of contemporary lingo and emotional connection with colour, Colourful Language is a series of art colour charts available as limited edition prints.
“Early in the first lockdown it occurred to me that much of the language we were all using sounded like fancy paint colours; ‘Furlough’,’Isolation’ , ’Distance’. The seed of an idea was planted but the situation felt too raw to act upon at the time.
Here we all are, many months later, adapting, evolving, and finding our way. Over the last year, the project has morphed and grown too, through conversations and playfulness, into a range of limited edition prints, bespoke hand-painted samplers and large-scale canvases.
I don't think I'm alone in feeling a strange nostalgia for those early lockdown days. As our collective reality changes and adjusts I hope this project prompts conversations and reflection, instigates a feeling of connection, or simply brings a little colour and humour into our lives. “ Lara Bowen, Colourful Language.
