Subtractive synthesis is a chromatic reproduction system based on combining a limited number of base colours, known as primary colours.
There are three: cyan, magenta and yellow.
Combining these colours in pairs produces the secondary colours (cyan and yellow give green, cyan and magenta give violet blue, yellow and magenta give vermillion red).
This collection of vases applies this theory by playing with the different colours they are made up of.
Each vase is composed of two elements, each of a primary colour. Two vessels are intertwined, one inside the other.
A complementary colour appears in the area where the two superimpose. Users, as they move around the object, change their view and thus, their perception of this part of the piece.
The lower part of the outer vase is transparent. This creates contrast, allowing the original colour of its contents to be seen.
