Jagged Colors – SOLD

 In Abstracts, Red's Art, Sold

Imagine the world around you without colors for a minute, how uninteresting and dull life would be. Colors play a vital role in our daily lives; and it has been verified that our activities and reactions are influenced by them

In colour psychology, red, yellow, blue, and green are considered as the primary colours. These colours represent body, emotion, mind, and the essential interdependence and harmony between these three elements, respectively.

It you think of the way we describe certain emotions (seeing red, feeling blue, green with envy), there’s no denying that color and mood are inextricably linked.

There are several reasons why colors are able to influence how we feel. “We react on multiple levels of association with colors — there are social or culture levels as well as personal relationships with particular colors,” explains Leslie Harrington, executive director of The Color Association of The United States, which forecasts color trends. “You also have an innate reaction to color. For example, when you look at red, it does increase your heart rate. It is a stimulating color. This goes back to caveman days of fire and danger and alarm.”

You also have learned certain associations with color, such as red making your heart race since it’s linked with fire trucks and ambulances (in other words, alarm) or yellow having positive association simply because it was the color of your beloved grandmother’s kitchen. “As you get older, you become much more conscious of those learned reactions than the innate ones,” adds Harrington.

The painting titled “Jagged Colors” possesses all the psychological primary colours – red, blue, yellow and green with the added effect of uneven, irregular, jagged, spiky edges.

“Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.” – Pablo Picasso
