This body of work is a reference to Yves Klein’s 10 Paintings, a publication made in 1954. Klein presented a series of commercially inked monochromatic ‘plates’ that suggested a catalogue of representations or details of his earlier paintings. However, the catalogue predates any of Klein’s monochromatic works and therefore can be regarded instead as a deliberate conceptual statement. (Ref Colour After Klein, Nuit Banai, 2005) Further information about Klein’s 10 Paintings can also be found at http://www.yvesklein.com/en/oeuvres/view/679/yves-peintures-yves-paintings/
Homage to Yves Klein – 10 Paintings, also references the British Colour Council Dictionary of Colour Standards. The use of textile threads and paper add a further layer of relevance.
