Colours contain power and energy in them and my work exposes that life throughout movement and colour-combination.
The colour relationship is the most important aspect in the work, although the paintings are meant to be simplistic and minimalist, the choosing of the right colours is what makes it engaging, as, by studying colour theory, there´s an infinite amount of effects the colours produce in the viewer´s eye. The best combinations to make contain the same hue, but it differs on the brightness and the saturation: in the blue category, all of the options are use from a baby-blue to an indigo tone. Other good combinations between different hues are better if they are high in saturation, for example, a baby-blue with white-pink and an light orange. Dark tones need to be carefully chosen since they can make very powerful images, the best is to use one light colour with one dark, and use no more than two different dark colours: a dark green works with a dark blue if there´s a whitish-cyan colour between them. The idea of creating a space where the viewer gets lost depends on how the colours are used, their hue, tone and value influences the overall picture and need to be carefully selected. Choosing big surfaces so that those details are more visible, which by itself it makes a better experience for the viewer since has a bigger impact.
The paintings are made in order to involve the viewer, not only the psychological effects from the different colours, but also, the patterns and arrangements they produce builds a sense of immersion, and it keeps the attention trapped by the need of exploring all of the details spread across the surface.
