Piece description from the artist
When I designed this piece, I was focused on using the idea of color as a symbol for something larger and researched on the Bauhaus movement, and J. Itten in particular. In his "treatise on color" Itten created a sort of psychological language with color. Yellow symbolized truth and red symbolized passion, mix them together and you get 'presence' or 'passion for truth'. Neat, huh? So for this one, blue symbolized spirit and combined with red (passion) I felt like violet would symbolize 'impassioned spirit'. I am still fascinated by associations with color, although in my thinking now I have to recognize that our relationships to color have much to do with the environment we live in and the colors we experience there. An example is that the Hopi here in Arizona have a different relationship to the color red (earth) because of the color of the ground. This work was also the first time I used a tool called a Brayer to muddle up the surface texture. Enjoy!
