Ylang Ylang reference is a nod to Colette's fathers business of natural essential oils and perfumery, within which she has worked over the years. As part of The Brutta Figura Project, brutta figura in Italian culture is when someone appears in a bad light. The antithesis is bella figura, something which everyone hopes to attain and is arguably keeping up appearances.
Created in 2020, this 29 × 19 cm piece was produced using natural pigments made in her studio, such as yellow ochre and bohemian green earth mixed with linseed oil, with the mixture resulting in a thick, luscious archival quality oil paint. Applied to canvas, the painting consists of large impasto expressionist marks, from which figures emerge.
