The Work Autumn Whitehurst

Erotica // Wednesday, December 07, 2011
'I love colour. I love the infinite possibilities that are created when different hues are juxtaposed side by side - there's a conversation that happens, during which there's shouting and murmuring. I tend to keep my colour choices very simple because I'm partial to a monochromatic palette with a touch of something in sharp contrast, so as to make that area jump a bit.' —Autumn Whitehurst
