Color Theories

Intrigued by how we, as women, respond to the use of color in images, I considered my own tendencies to feel in relation to color. Why do certain images drive us to relate to something larger than the context we see? How can the simple aesthetic of colors make us feel something so strong? The answers to these questions came about as I began personifying colors into tangible human beings with real feelings and outlooks on the world. By embracing the surface level aesthetic of images reflecting commercial, advertising and magazine, I crafted seven color-based personifications of women that provide contextual background. I think that I am writing a bit about myself and the observed women around me in each of these colors. Maybe we are all multifaceted human beings, a rainbow of colors, interactions, observations and experiences that make up who we are.
