The relativity of colors
WHO SAID THERE WERE SOME LAWS RElaTING to THE USE OF COLOR?
The rules concerning the use of colors are very different from those written indiscriminately. Here are some examples:
Why shouldn't the color black be used in artworks? The theory is that artists should avoid using it under any circumstances. Yet, is there an real reason for this rule? Maybe it represents darkness, death, grief; or maybe it conveys the idea of being ephemeral. Yet, this colour symbolizes simplicity, sobriety, austerity and mystery.
Why should one avoid to work with the color yellow? This cheerful color perfectly represents joy and warmth allowing the artwork to shine and be more alive. The color yellow is associated with power, knowledge and friendship. Yet, it has some negative connotations such as betrayal, deceit and lies.
Only artists can define what a color corresponds with.
It's up to the artist to mix and match colors as they think best. It is not possible to set such rules for artists who are free to create their works.
Our passionartist Jean Francois Contremoulin uses colors to express chromatic violence.
As for Mariele Gissinger, she uses colors to express the emotions existing in her approach. Colors highlight impatience, tension, tenderness and dynamism.
Through photo collages, our American passionartist Todd Hale mixes colors as he pleases.
Vera Ivanaj is a committed artist emphasizing the use of colors to convey strong messages for which any viewer must use their imagination to interpret the art for themselves.
