Blue Sky Roam
Black and white turns blue – Indigo Blue, Cobalt, Azure, Sapphire, Antilles Blue, Lapis Lazuli, Sky Eyes, Spartan Blue – an atlas of colour that marks Michael Danischewski's transition from the black and white medium.
Colour and pattern is woven throughout Morocco, not just in its iconic textiles, but in the landscape from which its rich, mineral based pigments originate. The pink mountains that alternate between barren, rocky plateaus of limestone, to lush valleys and towns where the colour of the surrounding ocean and sky have permeated everything, down to the shutters and streets and back into the textiles that clothe its locals. It is a place of longstanding tradition, home to archaic structures of immense industrial importance, yet inexplicably nomadic in nature. - Excerpt from Blue Sky Roam by Rachel Johnson.
