Colour Me Red, Colour Me Green by Liliana Ovalle
Colour Me Red, Colour Me Green is a colour project by mexican designer Liliana Ovalle that was shown during Milan Furniture Fair at the Plusdesign Editions in Ventura Lambrate.
From the exploration of how colour and paints can change an object significantly, Liliana created new narratives for otherwise mundane objects made from wood.
Liliana explains, “Colour can change the nature of an object as soon as the brush touches it. An immediate transformation takes place: different elements are unified into one and a new space is confined within the borders of the coloured surface.
The project explores the use of colour as means to bring a new significance to an object. A superficial layer draws a new shape within an assembly of wooden volumes and boards, broadening the perception of the whole. Colour opens a space for ambiguity and interpretation.”
