gharlands & wolves : parables in yellow gharlands & wolves: parables in yellow are episodes of rapt moments, with the temporality of a concentrated gaze; a brief loss of self to the here and now of an artwork recounted, where bodily sensory perception might oscillate in the hovering suspension of the imagination. These episodes are suggestions to the listener, an emotional demand. The perceptual framing of gharlands & wolves relies on the promise of storytelling suffused with sensuality and the vile, a conduit through yellow. Promises are of primrose, sherbet fizz, soft lemon satiny silk. Blond tones of naples yellow, pale ochre creamy flesh tones gush smooth, shaded pink from raw to burnt umber shadow..... Werner’s Nomenclature of Colours recorded 29 colour recipes to make 17 yellows. Each shade, expressed in elliptical form, became a thesis drawn in language through semiotics; yellow propositions the collaboration of material contradictions.
