The Dance of Colour
“The Dance of Colour has at its centre a shifting narrative that defies to be fixed - with one foot firmly planted in the portrait tradition and the other always thrust forward, testing, questioning, experimenting. Green’s work cannot be confined by a category or as a cliché but lived as a working philosophy.” David A. Bailey MBE
In The Dance of Colour, Nicola Green explores the meaning of mixed heritage identity and the complex culture of Brazil through the lens of Rio Carnival. The project encompasses two sets of works: Carnival, Beat and Bate Bola.
