Chromatic Metal by Joanna Campbell
"The idea with this work was simply to explore the absorbable quality of the anodised aluminium. And look at the process of dying or painting with dye, and have fun with colour, I have bead blasted the surface of the aluminium in order to make the surface area more porous like velvet so it really soaks up the colour"
