Colour Me, Beautiful is a work of performance art that creates ‘colour portraits’ of gallery visitors, accumulating visual traces of this engagement in a mural over the course of the project. Imagine this: you take a seat at the table. The artist invites you to talk about colour: how you see yourself in colour, your favourite colour, a colour that was important to you in the past, the colour you feel today. The artist mixes that colour until it matches your imaginings and then it is stencilled onto the mural. As the space fills, choices made with earlier visitors impact the appearance of choices made with later visitors. We have limited control over how we appear in the world, despite the freedom we have to colour our shape as we please.
