Statement from exhibition catalogue:

Paul Haywood and Maxine Kennedy have worked on a number of Public Art commissions, utilising a process of research and observation to capture a representation of localised landscapes that correspond, in some part, to the experience of local people. In Aberdeen, they will investigate and analyse colour and its occurrence across physical spaces of the city. Specifically, it will be an observation of the relationship between the built environment and the sea. This will result in a colour range, manufactured in household paints, abstracted from built and natural landscape associated with the City of Aberdeen. There will be an exhibition/display of the paints and a printed colour chart, representing the full range of colours designed for the project which will be distributed at the event." Postcards distributed included the following; Jasmine Grey, Mealmarket Grey, Marischal Grey, Crooked Grey, Bon Accord Grey, Golden Grey, Diamond Grey, Nether Kirkgate Grey, Correction Grey, Back Wynd Grey, Stirling Grey, Green Grey, Gaelic Grey, Belmont Grey, Craibstone Grey, Langstane Grey.
