When my paintings draw a person to them, that is when I put down my brush: they have achieved a result that I like to call a “colour field”. Painting is a way for me to vent my emotions – those brush strokes are the footprints of my feelings.
Blue symbolizes the sky and, by extension, the gods. It represents mystical things and the wonders of the universe. So blue apples represent a blue planet of water and oceans that cover most of planet Earth where we live.
Yellow represents gold and wealth, while red symbolizes fire, courage, anger, stormy emotions, love and power.
Pastel pink is like a youthful complexion, the skin of youth.
Purple and lilac represent mystery and the unknown things that we cannot understand. Imperial purple is chemically very closely related to indigo, and it can sometimes be very difficult to tell the two colours apart. It is indeed possible to get blue from purple by involving a photo-chemical reaction in sunlight in such a way that it was like the world itself born out of light. Purple has often been considered to be a symbol of power, greed and luxury. However, bluer shades of purple (with a little sunlight mixed in) remind us not to forget the more mystical side of the universe.
Black can represent time, and white represents logical things. Mixing black and white together, we achieve the colour grey which is passive, silent and meditative, representing profound thoughts and those who love peace.
Green is the new planet, and the hope that this should be the ideal planet.
