What shall life be
without a little dab of black ?
Everything would be so drab
in the blinding swath of bright.
For it is in darkness,
where shines the light,
and only with a dash of black
does the palette come to life.
A colour so pervasive
that it often escapes the mind,
and yet it makes all else shine
to the eye that would otherwise be blind.
That is the brilliance of BLACK.
– Mo Irom
” Without black, no color has any depth. But if you mix black with everything, suddenly there’s shadow – no, not just shadow, but fullness. You’ve got to be willing to mix black into your palette if you want to create something that’s real”. (Amy Grant)
