Equal Insistence of Proportion of Colour on a 2D Surface

Staig-Graham, B. N. (2006) Equal Insistence of Proportion of Colour on a 2D Surface. Optics & Laser Technology, 38 (4-6). pp. 431-439. ISSN 0030-3992

Katz conducted experiments on Insistence and Equal Insistence, using an episcotister, chromatic, and achromatic papers which he viewed under different intensities of a light sources and chromatic illumination. His principle of Equal Insistence, combined with Goethe's reputed proportions of surface colours according to their luminosity, and Strzeminski's concept of Unism in painting inspire the author's current painting practice. However, a whole new route of research has been opened by the introduction of Time as a phenomenon of Equal Insitence and Image Perception Fading, under contolled conditions of observer movement at different distances, viewing angles, and illumination. Visual knowledge of Equal Insistence indicates, so far, several apparent changes to the properties of surface colours, and its actual effect upon the shape and size of paintings and symbolism. Typical of the investigation are the achromatic images of an elephant and a mouse.
