Learn to speak colour
These images are from separate exhibitions viewed in Australia within the last two years.
One was a part of the fabulous ‘Future Fashion’ held at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA), in Brisbane, Queensland Australia,
and the other was from the 'Chuck Close' show at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), in Sydney, Australia.
Both were extraordinary shows.
The cohesive theme between these two very different shows and thus images is colour.
The ever present element that drives our psyches.
That feeds our souls.
There are constant dialogues and conversations occurring between colours, tints and hues.
The amount of colours now available to everyone is both a delight and a disaster, as like all languages, one must learn how to speak
but in some ways, more importantly, learn how to hear the nuances of that language.
Learn to listen to the colours you are looking at.
What are they saying both from a physiological and semiotic perspective.
How do they make you feel or for that matter, what do you want them to say?
Learn to speak colour...it will change your life.
