Developing a Sense of Regional Colour


The Learning Zone exhibited work from Linda Montgomery’s Fall 2011 “Colour in Context” classes at OCAD University. The concept for this project was to explore the meaning of “regional colour” using colour, shape, collage and texture.

“Even though we many recognize regional cuisines or customs, we often fail to take into account the importance of the local colours that characterize a particular area…determining regional colours and designing cities and products using colour and image should be viewed as one of the professional colourist’s most important jobs.”  -Kobayshi
