COLOR OF YOU SERIES

The Color of You is founded on the principles of Color Psychology, which recognizes that colors, as part of a visual field, have a frequency corresponding to a range of emotions. In my research practicing art therapy and seeing which colors resonate with a person’s psychological state, I have recognized the profound power of visual art’s essential building blocks.

Additionally, the Color of You series would draw significant inspiration from the chakra system of ancient Hinduism. Achieving an alignment of chakras, where personal energies are balanced, helps individuals find flow and harmony in their lives. My work with the pure form of color strives to generate this necessary equilibrium in my audience. When in balance, one feels as if in a state of flow, and desires are easy to manifest. By contrast, if a person’s chakra is out of balance, there will be a draw to the particular color that could restore needed balance. In a state of disequilibrium, one will also feel certain emotions in excess of others, and this feeling will be held in a particular corresponding area of the body. The goal is to restore balance. This can be achieved through an interaction with color.  

Which one resonates with you?

Inner Wave is a visual statement about enlightenment as being an observer of your emotions. Instead of responding to every feeling, just sit back as a witness. Well, I’ve got a ways to go on this journey and learning this lesson. Yet, this painting makes me think of the white as the observer and the ocean as the emotion.

Here is an example of color psychology referencing dark blue. Dark blue is related to the third eye chakra, which involves listening to your intuition and following the signs of the universe. Dark blue brings the feeling of inner security, trust, and calmness. With an imbalanced chakra of this type you will feel a lack of intuition and inability to trust. This imbalance can be redressed with the use of the appropriate chakra color, in this case dark blue.
