About Seeing Colors Differently

Seeing Colors Differently

In my artwork, I’m more guided by what visually satisfies me than what makes me fit into the contemporary art world. As much as I love the red tones in a pomegranate, I almost always choose to draw instead of paint.

For me, each color has a life of its own.

I can’t randomly select colors and then just haphazardly slap them down on a surface. If I do, something inside feels incredibly uncomfortable.

For me, each color must have its own space and it must be compatible in some way with all of its neighbors. In this respect, colors are very much like people.

Somehow a color has an individual presence beyond its appearance on a surface.
