In these A3-size works, a photographic image is split up into the image (in black and white) and the colours.
The colours present in the snapshot are listed from light to dark within a grid of 16×16 squares. Because the light colours end up at the top of this mathematical, computer-controlled list, many of these works create the illusion of a horizon and an abstracted landscape. The colours are reproduced on top of the print in oil paint.
The first series of six works came about when cole, prompted by the question: Who are you? travelled to the Mont Ventoux and from the summit took several photographs of the surrounding landscape.
