Pigment Stories: Margot Guerrera’s Colour Wheel
By Ruth Siddall, on 24 March 2020
This beautiful colour wheel was created for Work Pigment Day by Margot Guerrera, and artist from Santa Fe in the South-West USA and the pigments she has used here have been inspired by the desert landscape in which she lives. Starting at the top, the pigments used are Heart Wuda (heartwood), Campeche Wood, New Mexican Ochre, Copper Vitriol, Azurite and Mixtec Indigo. They represent a mixture of plant-based dyes, geological deposits and synthetic materials, reflecting the world of pigments.
