Color Rendition Charts for Future Times Based on the Past

Ryan Boatright

2006, series of unique works

€350 each

Ryan Boatright is clearly fascinated with the process of using colour. His work pursues, through a series of unique works, the way in which colour is handled as a science. The generic colour reference cards that photographers use to get a correct colour balance are probably one of the most photographed objects on the planet and yet we very rarely see them as they never appear in final consumer images. Boatright uses this standard collection of coloured squares as a structure for analysing and outputting his own family photos. Each fondly remembered moment is reduced to a collection of 24 monochrome squares, every key moment in his life becoming a standardised colour reference. The colours in 'Color Rendition Charts for Future Times Based on the Past' have been modelled after the colours found in photographs that document his most memorable experiences. The charts may be used to improve the accuracy of specific types images made in the future. Artworks: Color Rendition Chart for Santas; Color Rendition Chart for Jobs; Color Rendition Chart for Vacations; Color Rendition Chart for First Birds; Color Rendition Chart for Fathers and Sons; Color Rendition Chart for NewBorns.
