Great art picks up where nature ends.
With innovation and technology,
seems we have forgotten to cherish the true beauty
the world has to offer.
-A.C. Van Cherub
Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nature is my medicine. –
Love this artistic exploration into the colors created by vegetables, distilled into different mediums like soap, Zout, alcohol. (Media, I guess is more correct, but I think something entirely different when I use that word. Invoking the ‘it’s my blog and I’ll write what I want to’ rule.)
The first two belong to an exhibit named RAW COLOR:
Vegetables are dismantled and purified to their visual essence ‘RAW COLOR’. The harvested color is captured by a new process preserving their intensity on color cards.
The third is the colors applied to textiles; the last an exhibit featuring the liquid palette.
I love how the colors all seem to be complementary and I can’t help but wonder if painting your house in these hues would create a sort of medicinal color therapy. The health and mood boosting effects of time spent in nature are well-documented; to what extent are those effects drawn from nature’s soothing yet energizing color palette?
Interesting ideas, and really I could get lost forever in all the different exhibits. Rather than me listing them all I suggest you go check them out for yourself (but please don’t miss the Sight Unseen Photos, they are awesome).
I need to paint my kitchen. And dining room. And… the whole house, really.
