Colour, art and empire: visual culture and the nomadism of representation.
Book I.B.Tauris: Croyden, distributed London and New York.
This book examines what I take to be the nomadic status and stases of colour during and after the British Empire (18th century to the present). Using substantial fieldwork from India with reference also to New Guinea, Britain and Mexico, the thesis of this book argues for the potential revolutionary and subversive nature of colour in relation to alchemy, economics, Indian nationalism, race, the colour sense and ethnography.
