this is the third project of colour experiments Hella jongerius made with the the modern classic Red White Vase of 1997 used as the ‘canvas’. The first series (featuring 40 RAL colours) was produced in 2003, the second series (with 42 NCS colours) in 2007. this third version of 300 Coloured Vases, an investigation into the perception of colours that optically merge, was produced in 2010. On the basis of 100 old mineral recipes and 100 industrial colour transfers, 300 polychrome colours were produced which are reminiscent of the colour intensities of old paintings.
