Helga Steppan's Chromatically Arranged Belongings

In her art series See Through, Swedish artist Helga Steppan arranged all her material belongings into separate piles based on color:

This way of working can be clearly seen in the series ‘See Through’ for which Steppan audited all of her belongings and divided them into a full spectrum of different colour groupings to photograph: White, Black, Yellow, Red, Miscellaneous, Blue, Orange, Green, Pink, Grey, Purple, and Brown.

The final images are visually seductive and ask the viewer to consider whether they can discover the artist’s persona reflected in the meticulously constructed installations of her material possessions.

Do they? Really? Are you sure? Are you sure they don't just make the viewer go "huh, that's a lot of stuff the same colour."

Oh people care. This is a common theme amongst artists. It's interesting to see the different ways each artist chooses to go about it. I also feel it's heavily influenced by an artists' mental state, which tends to be quite jumbled. It's like a physical exercise in attempting to order their lives. To compartmentalize their stress.

Or so goes my theory.
