An American artist discovers a small shop in Dhaka, Bangladesh where she learns how to make organic colors from plants, making inks by hand, from indigo flowers, herbs and bark. This process becomes a metaphor for understanding nature, art and life.MoreAn American artist discovers a small shop in Dhaka, Bangladesh where she learns how to make organic colors from plants, making inks by hand, from indigo flowers, herbs and bark.

This process becomes a metaphor for understanding nature, art and life. Beginning to paint with natural color, along with artists from Asia, allows powerful natural forces and patterns to emerge in her work. In the workshop where color is made, the ingredients take on an almost mythic presence, where process and timing emerge as key ingredients in ancient craft. Living color made from sustainable sources, opens an awareness of plants and herbs. A mysterious process helps her to reach back into the past, to other countries, history and her own life. This richly textured and engaging memoir of color suggests new and traditional ways to view plants and color.

In chapters such as Summer Meadow – Bay – Curry – Basil – Apple Trees – Mint, the author shares her color memories, through gardens and travel. The history of colors unravels the shadowy story of Indigo in Bengal, and the pre-Civil war American South. A slow, careful process of making color from natural materials reveals the use of herbs to sustain health, the power of color in art, enlightening encounters with nature, and lessons left us by pre-industrial societies.

Colors- Passages through Art, Asia and Nature offers a unique study of nature’s processes, the origins of color and the birth of paint.
