A Klein(d) of Blue
On May 19, 1960, The French Patent Office issued Patent Number 63471 to Yves Klein for his invention of a new paint mixing technique. This patent inadvertently led to the invention of International Klein Blue (IKB) a color that Yves Klein built his career around and artists and brands have referred back to ever since. Emma was inspired not only by Klein's ability to successfully work with one color for an entire career but also the strong emotions that the textural elements of his paintings evoke. This series of photographs are meant to elicit that same reaction.
