Blue obsession
2010-13
by Jose F Costa

Maybe because artists struggled in the past to get blue pigment out of natural elements that nowadays people use this color extensively on some plastic artefacts. It seems to be an obsession that chases me too. In this anthropologic place, wherever I look I find myself finding those blue artefacts. They cannot be unnoticed on the pastel tone of the landscape. During the AURA project I questioned myself about a new series that was emerging. I then started to collect images for this project. I have a huge collection of images with blue artefacts and its different uses, though the ones shown here are a still life approach.
