Why everything is SuperChroma

I have been busy recently working on a number of new paintings which explore base colours. The paintings are based on the familiar shapes and forms which I love, but they seek to look at how they are influenced and shaped by the colour that creates them. I guess this is the basis for my thinking around their title of SuperChroma.

Reasons why everything is super:

In clever speak, 'Super' has origins in Latin as a preposition and as a prefix as above, beyond, in addition, to an especially high degree; akin to Greek hypér, Sanskrit upari. See, its super clever :)

Reasons why I love everything chroma:

Chroma is the Greek word for colour.
Chroma is the colorfulness relative to the brightness of a similarly illuminated area that appears to be white or highly transmitting.
Chrominance (or chroma) is one of the two components of a television signal that supplement a brightness signal to represent a color.
Chroma is a measure of color purity in the Munsell color system.

See SuperChroma for yourself. More in this series coming super soon !
