THE MYSTERY OF COLOR
Color has a mystical quality; a vibration that resonates with our innermost being. Wassily Kandinsky wrote, “Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.” Matisse expresses his discovery that, “Color gives energy, vitality and stimulates and heals the body.” Hans Hoffman said, “The whole world as we experience it visually comes to us through the mystic realm of color. Our entire being is nourished by it. This mystic quality of color should likewise find expression in a work of art.”
