Of Colors, Movies and Perception

A week of Colors and Movies

This is the second week of just colors, colors and colors !
Why colors you ask? Because I like them, and they influence our perceptions every day. Depending on the combination and the shade of a color, a picture changes. In fact, an environment can change completely. Have you ever felt a color? Remember the last time you where in the cinema watching this really amazing movie – the mood of that movie depended a lot on the palette of colors used. Even if the colors where added afterwards. Why am I talking about movies now? To me, movies represent a magnificent Artform – the combination of storytelling, moving images, sounds and music. I can dive right into another world, when in the cinema.

Some of my works recall cinematographic sceneries – one could call them stills – I think they are much more than that. A still of a movie is a 1/24 of a second. My paintings cant be measured in time. Any moment in a painting seems timeless.

Try to look at the color palette of the next movie you see.
You will be surprised …

“I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.”

Vincent Van Gogh
