Why colours are so important
All colours promote reactions, sometimes extreme and sometimes not. How you view these two as a combination will be dependent on the life you’ve lead to this point.
Now if that sounds a bit heavy I apologise; what that statement does is outline the principle of taste and how that is shaped by our experiences and uniqueness.
So it should come as no surprise then that art is so subjective because of this principle. There really shouldn’t be, in my opinion, such a thing as good or bad art – just the things we get on with and the things we don’t.
Let’s talk about red and black
These colours from the main part of the painting. Not only do they fill the largest portion of the canvas but they also shape the name, feeling and responses to it.
Red can be a tricky colour to use and I do find it a bit, well, oppressive if used incorrectly or without care and consideration. in my own creativity I tend to pair it with other colours that help to tone it down a bit.
However, the whole point of Love, Die, Repeat was to create something of the heart. So for that I needed red – and plenty of it.
When you go for something powerful, deep and tempestuous you can’t fuck around with pastels. Either go for it an get your point across or don’t bother. Add black and the two main colours have their place with each other.
