What Happened in-between Red Green and Blue

Simone Mudde’s latest work takes colour separation photography as its subject matter. Three monochrome images are exposed using coloured filters and subsequently layered in the darkroom (or via digital editing) to constitute a colour image. Developed in the early 20th century as a means for making colour images, the process was traditionally followed with a meticulous attention to detail. In order for an accurate colour image to be produced, the three separations demanded perfect composition and accurate exposure. Any failure to do so could result in alignment issues as well as glitches of colour. In the case of Mudde, failure is taken as a narrative and basis for the work to be built on. Errors are used to identify the passing of time, the latency of movement, and furthermore to break down the colours that are perceived within the images.

  • Simone Mudde is a Dutch artist working in London, her work is often interested in the concepts of time, labour, and process. Whilst her previous collaborations with Olivier van Breugel explored many of these ideas in relation to technology through observations of human behaviour in public spaces, her more recent work, though incorporating many of these previous attitudes, have expanded on how time can be perceived and manifested through the very processes involved in creating her work.
