Olafur Eliasson on J.M.W Turner

Eliasson has analysed seven paintings by Turner to create Turner colour experiments

Turner’s colour experiments relate to an ongoing series of Colour experiment paintings which began in 2009 when Eliasson started analysing pigments, paint production and application of colour in order to mix paint in the exact colour for each nanometre of the visible light spectrum. Turner colour experiments demonstrate Turner’s continued relevance to and fascination for artists today.
