Art’s deep purple

CONTINUING on the theme of the colours of the rainbow, the colour purple is now in focus at the Hellenic-French Association (League) on Kolonaki Square. The exhibition ‘Purple’, organised by Dimitris Lazarou, opened its doors to the public on Thursday (Feb 9), and runs till Feb 28. The official inauguration will be on Monday, Feb 13.

What can one say about the colour purple? Made from blue and red? A deep colour, associated with death in many countries, but also with sobriety (as is the case with amethyst). It has inspired so many creatives, from rock groups (Deep Purple), to writers (Alice Walker, who wrote ‘The Colour Purple’). This art exhibition now comes to show us what the colour purple means to artists, who have explored its many shades and tones: from lilac and lavender to the darkest mauve.
