THE PERSONAL EFFECT OF COLOR

As a child with epilepsy, my world was characterized by sudden seizures and unpredictable emotional outbursts. In the midst of this chaos, I found refuge in the world of color. This showed me early on that colors could have an immediate impact on emotional well-being. For this reason, even if for therapeutic reasons, my artistic journey began in my early teens. Artists such as Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Keith Haring, David Hockney & Josef Albers showed me that color and impact had a special power on me. Josef Albers' famous series "Homage to the Square" is also a testament to his fascination with the effect of color on the psyche of the viewer. Albers' art therapy approach was based on the idea that colors create an individual resonance and thus offer the possibility of releasing emotional blockages. Similar to the Rorschach method, colors can bring out deep-seated emotions and bring unconscious conflicts to light. 

 

The therapeutic effects of color go beyond personal healing. Colors can also serve as a powerful communicative medium. They speak a universal language that transcends cultural and linguistic boundaries. They have the power to address emotions directly and communicate on a deeper, intuitive level. Red can convey passion and energy, blue often represents calm and peace, while green is associated with nature and freshness. Each color has its own symbolic meaning, which is influenced by cultural contexts and personal experiences.
