‘a palette’ ‘My palette’

When I was told to pick an object that represents a conjunction with my practice I automatically looked at my palette. 

Having heard more about the concept of the project, it drew me closer to the object in ways that I didn’t necessarily grasp before being asked the task. My palette is something that is recycled over and over again. What intrigued me is that consciously I see the palette as just a tool, a palette, for my final outcome but when asked to value this object it made me judge the object completely differently. I started to think how every painting that I have ever worked on for years has been created with this palette - it is a history or an archive of all the paint I have used for my paintings. As time has gone, the more it has been used and aged through the timeline of my work. This palette is a part of all my work thus far. My palette coexists with the ethos of the recycling of value and material as it this project enabled me to realise how sentimental and how physically present this object is to me, hence the reason while I write this and think, the more sentimental the item has become from ‘a palette’ to ‘my palette’
