THE MEANING OF COLORS: COMING FROM AN ARTIST'S POINT OF VIEW

"I have come to realize that color is experiential, and belongs to the same realm of experience as listening to music. I think color and light are related to each other in the same way that music and sound are related. The seeing of light or the hearing of sound is essentially the perception of vibrations by the ear or the eye. In working with the colors in relationships as I do, I think of them as compositions working in the same way as a group of notes creates a chord or a phrase of music. Thinking of this I realized that many of the same terms describing color and music are interchangeable. One refers to tonal or atonal musical compositions, or harmonious or discordant colors. I continue to explore and be amazed by the relationships between colors and the idea of color in the world, and I hope to learn new ways to express it through my work."
