Green - the colour of peace, the colour of fertility. The colour of the changing grass in front of my apartment after weeks of gathering frost. I notice we almost never wear green, (has it ever even been in fashion?), but that is probably because of its limited compatibility with human complexions and other wearable colours.
I have never excluded green from my favourite mood boards, however, such things are pleasant must always have the shade of green in its existence. From art to fashion, from nature to human works: Monet's bridge paintings, Lempicka's fashion chicks, Anne's knock-out dressing gown in Bonjour Tristesse, and who could bypass Scarlet's green gown that was made out of a falling curtain?
The green at Chau Art offers the similar mood of fashion and harmony with female bodies, yet with greater subtlety. I love these scarves that use green as part of its aesthetic works, one way distorting reality and another appraising and bringing out nature's true colour. I don't dare putting on a whole green gown like Scarlett or Knightley in Atonement, but a touch of green on my little black dress has recently been quite an obsession.
The colour brings such a taste of exoticism for me that works in the same way with red, but is charged with less sexuality. It is almost philosophical in a sense, the colour that synthesizes the vastness of nature, a girl's fertility and a touch of calm thoughts – all awaken in that shades of blue of yellow.
Green is blue without sad thoughts and a yellow with painted compassion – always remains pleasant, always remains nature, constantly imitating life...
