Ottawa, December 2022 –
Leslie Hossack’s latest book CONSTRUCTED RECOLLECTION, an abstract autobiography, is now available.
“The images presented in this publication form a colour-coded record of my childhood as unique as my physical DNA. These works were inspired by memories and informed by research. The palette that I created for this collection is deeply rooted in the colours of 1950s – colours that defined a decade and shaped a generation. For every “constructed recollection” I carefully mixed my custom colours, and I invented a personalized name for each one. My early childhood palette consists of 80 colours. For each, I recorded the name and sRGB values, thereby creating an indexed colour chart of my first years.”
