A Rainbow Reader

Tessa Laird 2013


A Rainbow Reader is a work of creative non-fiction which looks at colour from the personal perspective of artist and writer Tessa Laird.  In 2009 Laird started a Doctorate of Fine Arts investigating the (r)evolutionary power of colour, from a personal, and political, transformative angle.  A Rainbow Reader is the result of that study, but it is no ordinary academic treatise.  Consisting of six chapters, one of each spectral hue, colour becomes a catalyst for speculative writing encompassing art history, literary criticism, personal anecdote, philosophy and anthropology.
