The Rebus Series A rebus is a representa on of words or phrases by images whose names sound similar to them—for instance, an image of an eye can be used as a rebus to represent the word 'I'. The connec ons made in this way allow for visual and linguis c absurdi es that can transform the original meaning into something dierent. Those kinds of transforma ons are an important in how William Kentridge allows things to happen in the studio.

Colour Swatches Each 'colour swatch' was expressed by William Kentridge as an ink wash drawing on ledger paper. The wash drawings were then transferred onto lino-blocks and collabora vely carved with APS ar sts to reverse the tradi onal process of hard-edge carving out nega ve spaces from the block, to approximate the splashing or uidity of ink-wash pain ng. This requires technical virtuosity to match the expressive drawings. Each work is a colour swatch represented by a hand-screen-printed name of the colour on a white ground that approximates a label. The colour swatches are printed on handmade sisal and co on paper made by the Phumani Paper Mill at the University of Johannesburg and ' pped' onto the sheet of Arches 300gm paper. These works illustrate William Kentridges response to the rendering of colour in black and white.
