"In Lajeunie’s series of images, colour appears as a powerful intrusion upon the ocean. The images presented in the work Water meets colour, colour meets water are loaded with violence. The ocean is tinted with natural sugar colouring, causing an array of absorbing patterns to materialise in the waves. As the colours bleed into the sea, the texture of the water thickens and the motion of the waves is (re)defined, revealing its hidden course and complex networks. The crashing waves, which are carefully contained within the camera frame, pull the viewer into a vortex of frozen shapes and novel configurations that are otherwise indiscernible to the human eye."
