Overprinting. Take two colours. Overprint. Where they intersect a third is formed. “1+1=3” (Kindel, 2002). Executed in the digital world, the overprinting effect simulated. Digital mimicking an analog world.
The concept that two coming together and a third being formed relates to hybridity. In each study the effect has been modulated in different ways.
Somebody commented that it “Rothko with a cataract”. Perhaps. The color palette is, perhaps, depressing.
