Life Before Colour
by Leasa Mensing
Step into a time capsule that, once entered, takes the’ traveller’ back to a simpler, easier world with a slowed-down pace . Being a time traveller is one of the few things that will never be possible, except through the vicarious domain of books and film.
The use of monochromatic colour pays tribute to the artists’ love of old black and white photography but also transports us to another time, through a filter of antique memorabilia pulling you in - as if you are a character in an old sepia photograph.
Indulge in the simple pleasures of the time; brewing a pot of tea, writing a wish–you –were–here postcard, or whiling away an afternoon with a game of chess…when one could draw a bath and then spend an indulgent afternoon in your Victorian boudoir.
