“As soon as several colours converge on a canvas, they lose their absolute value (the pure tone) and acquire a relative one. (…) In monochrome painting each colour retains its absolute value. Restricting to one colour brings the laws of space to the fore. Space is the product of a single colour. The viewer of a monochrome painting feels saturated by the colour, they sense the fierce longing to immerse themselves in the colour”. Bernard Aubertin
