Grayson Perry‘s six large scale tapestries tell the story of the life of the character Tim Rakewell. Perry imagines how he crosses the class divide and suffers for it. The tapestries are made digitally and are very colourful. I haven’t been able to find out if Perry has to take into consideration his colour choices because of the affect of simultaneous contrast which was discovered by Michel Eugene Chevreul when investigating issues with threads appearing grey when placed alongside other colours and exploited by the Neo-Impressionists. Perhaps I need to email him to ask!
