This paper begins by arguing that the enduring mystery of colour has led to an unspoken prejudice against chromatic excessiveness. Yet colour continues to break free of its constraints, it bursts out of the earth and sky in an audacious display of autopoiesis, tempting artists to reveal its power. Colour rather than being seen and calculated, shines out, shimmers and reveals a world in much the same way that thinking does.
