Arthur Buxton’s work engages with data visualisations methods that use colour extraction tools to explore trends in painting and print media. Using open source software the artist extracts colours from images gathered online to create charts and timelines that typically display the five most common colours in each image as a percentage. In this instance the removal of figurative and formal elements from an image present a series of colour harmonies and trends, alluding to sampling methods, information graphics, automation technologies and objective forms of re-presentation.
