Description: “As with all prejudices, its manifest form, it’s loathing, masks a fear: a fear of contamination and corruption by something that is unknown or appears unknowable. This loathing of colour, this fear of corruption through colour, needs a name: chromophobia.” David Batchelor.
This painting is part of the series called chromophobia, a series that arises from a feeling of incomprehension, a mockery from western culture towards the Artist's work.
