Cangiante (a word of Arabic origin) means a play with colours or colour shifting. In brief, radiant colours are placed next to each other in a way that omits one or two shades or transitions from the continuous colour spectrum. The relationships between the cangiante proximities are pretty crude and there is no logic in their system; they are based instead on personal colour preferences, and they satisfy certain sensory needs, evoking sensations within the viewer.

Ilona Keserü: COLOUR-SPACE (1977)
In 1972 I made an attempt in one of my paintings to present all the colours I could mix from the three primary oil pigments. Green, blue, purple, orange and yellow gradually merged as each colour approached the other cautiously via certain colour shades and variant fields. This resulted in some undesirable clashes within the painting. What could I use as a neutral surface between any two colours?
