The Colour Bars grew out of an experimental model for art and life developed collaboratively in Vancouver, Canada, in the late 1960s and 70s. The objects functioned as a frame of reference, props for documenting an environment.

The physics of light and the perception of color have long engaged both artists and scientists alike, making the rainbow a timeless point of departure. Fifty years later, the Colour Bars remain a useful reference, the building blocks of an Endless Painting still in the process of formation.
