Colour and the shape

by Chris Wharton

This is an abstract interpretation of the meeting and melding of cultures. the fours corners of this poster are made from four individual colours and shapes. The space in between is where they slowly merge and mingle into each other. The process of communication and understanding is the process of empathy and assimilation, the ability to comprehend another's perspective and to take something from that., to adopt the ways of others while retaining your own identity. The merging cultivates new shapes and shades of colour just like new ideas and new opinion should be formed from interacting and dialogue.
