Anna Carey’s Rainbows to a Daydream

Anna Carey told me during our interview (2017): “In each case, I chose a colour and then built over my own memories. Green paradise evokes the smell of houses on the coast, around the trees. Blue pearl is associated with the ocean, and Purple sage features diamonds, based on an old Queenslander like my aunt owned. They are also predicated on the colours I think certain people I have known would put in their home. Each colour filters a different memory, emotion and smell.”
