Description

In CHROMA Derek Jarman explains the use of colour in Medieval painting through the Renaissance to the modernists and draws on the great colour theorists from Pliny to Leonardo. He also talks about the meaning of colours in literature, science, philosophy, psychology, religion and alchemy. The colours on Jarman's palette are mixed with memory and insight to create an evocative and highly personal work.

Author Biography

Derek Jarman's creativity spanned decades and genres - painter, theatre designer, director, film maker, writer and gardener. From his first one-man show at the Lisson Gallery in 1969; set designs and costumes for the theatre and ballet; production design for Ken Russell's films The Devils and Savage Messiah; through his own films in super-8; features such as Sebastine (1976), The Tempest (1979), Caravaggio (1986), The Last of England (1987) and Edward II (1991); to directing pop-videos and live performances for Pet Shop Boys and Suede. His paintings - for which he was a Turner Prize nominee in 1986 - have been exhibited world-wide. His publications include: Dancing Ledge, Kicking the Pricks, Modern Nature, At Your Own Risk and Derek Jarman's Garden. Jarman died in 1994 of an AIDS-related illness, aged 52. His garden surrounding the fisherman's cottage in Dungeness where he spent the last years of his life remains a site of awe and pilgrimage for fans and newcomers to Jarman's singular vision.
