Abstract

This search for meaning is not all that holds us, however. There is also Maggs's incomparable colour. Like all of his projects related to the France of a century ago, it is paradoxically both lush and washed out. The lighting obliterates shadows and mitigates the discolouring effects of age, dust and water. Paper scraps become palettes from which Arnaud Maggs produces colours subtly different from anything we have seen before. These striking hues distract us from the daily business that produced these papers and draw our attention instead to their unassuming beauty, which Maggs has found hidden in plain view.
