Shona Heath, looking for the wrongest colors

This is a fascinating video, serving as an introduction to the surrealism-inspired work of set designer Shona Heath, who has worked in the areas of fashion, advertising, store windows, film, and more. Throughout the interview, she shows examples of surrealist art works by artists who inspire her, including Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Yves Tanguy, Dorothea Tanning, Man Ray, Francis Picabia, and more. One of my favorite parts of the video comes from her explanation of her appreciation for certain colors, always wanting to paint things blue or green that “shouldn’t be blue or green” (spoken while the camera pans past a blue sandwich). She then describes wanting to find “what is the ‘wrongest’ color to paint something?” I love that!
