From CMYK to RGB

Parraman, Carinna



For over a century, commercial printers and artists have sought to colour separate pictures using half toning methods and process colours of cyan magenta yellow and black to reproduce full colour prints. New developments in inks and pigments have turned this idea around that can now print on black paper using red green and blue inks. This may well sound impossible, but the results are remarkable. Carinna Parraman will talk about the relationship of additive and subtractive colours, and research into photography and fine art printmaking at the CFPR.
