Naturally Brilliant Colour

In stock

Naturally Brilliant Colour is the first book to reveal artworks made using the world’s brightest colour – Pure Structural Colour, recently derived from the metallic-like colours of Pollia berries, hummingbirds and butterflies. Pure Structural Colour is a mimic of the type of structural colour that has evolved many times, independently, in nature to appear the brightest type of colour to the eye, and has co-evolved with the visual systems of animals to result in the ultimate form of colouration.

In this book scientist and artist Andrew Parker reveals for the first time his artworks created using Pure Structural Colour, and describes how this colour evolved simultaneously with the eye itself – a narrative which is followed throughout the artworks in their patterns and visual effects. Art meets science in this stunningly visual book, which opens our eyes to reveal that the world of colour is far more complex and sophisticated than we could have ever imagined. The book accompanies the global unveiling of Pure Structural Colour and the exhibition Naturally Brilliant Colour on show at Kew Gardens on 2021, where the original artworks were displayed for the first time.
