What does Muted Colours mean to the Artist?
The Artist typically likes simplified Primary Colours of Blue, Red & Yellow, and White, taken directly out of the tube (Heavy Body), or pre-installed Pop Art colours (in Adobe computer software), and these colours are principal colours in Televisions screens. However, another aspect of the Artist Practice is Contrasts, such contrast between yin & yang, light and dark, or as in this work, Heavy Body and Muted colours. For the Artist Muted Colours means opposite of Dark Heavy Body Colours, means Light Muted Colours.
What is the work about?
I have chosen to base my work on a photograph that I have submitted, and taken a few years back that depicts a photograph of Townscape of Ibiza Town taken during Daytime.
I have taken a different stance for this work, by digitally modifying the image, modifying the Daylight scene of typically White Buildings to the opposite of Night Life scene, by using Pop Art colours, typically Primary Colours of Blue, Red & Yellow to represent the Disco Lights, to make a more colourful composition.
Within the original image of the daylight scene there are hidden Muted colours of Greys, Blues and Violets and Pinks, and these Muted colours Contrasts with that of the Pop Art colours or Heavy Body colours.
