COLOR IT FALL

Artist Lecture 

 

We see color thanks to the cones in our eyes. (The rods are for night vision.) Humans are trichromats, that is, we see red, green, and blue. . . and mixtures of all these.

Many birds and fish, on the other hand, are tetrochromats and see 4 colors including ultraviolet colors invisible to us. A small percentage of women, some 2% – 3%, are tetrachromats and see at least one additional ultraviolet color.

What is your favorite color?

Ask a few people around the room. Chances are, between 50 – 60% will favor blue.

What can color do? It can . . .
* attract attention. People see color before they see anything else.
* hold attention. People pay attention to black and white for about ½ second or less. They pay attention to color for 2 – 3 seconds.
* Color has power. Consider the colors of STOP, GO and CAUTION.
*Color increases memory.

*Color images are processed before black and white images, so they are remembered better.
*Color informs better than black and white.

Research shows color improves readership by 40%, learning by 55 – 78%, and comprehension by 73%.
*Colors have personality and meaning and personalities vary with one’s culture.
*Color combined with shape sends special messages.
*Color attracts attention to brands better than words. What colors are signs? What is on the background of a sign?
*The color of your clothing tells a lot about you, your profession, and your status.
*Color transmits messages without ever using a word.

Aren’t artists lucky?  We have free use of color which can to do and say so many different things! All we have to do is to learn to make use of the many meanings of color as we create our treasures. —Jo Pomeroy- Crockett, Ph.D, writer and artist.

“We are all like the bright moon, we still have our darker side.” — Kahlil Gibran

 

“We must strive to be like the moon.’ An old man in Kabati repeated this sentence often… the adage served to remind people to always be on their best behavior and to be good to others.  No one grumbles when the moon shines. Everyone becomes happy and appreciates the moon in their own special way. Children watch their shadows and play in its light, people gather at the square to tell stories and dance through the night. A lot of happy things happen when the moon shines. These are some of the reasons why we should want to be like the moon.”   –Ishmael Beah

 

“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.”

–John F. Kennedy

And, too,  questions to the audience at FINDINGS, the opening reception for the August exhibition, at Fairweather House and Gallery.

What is new?

What is bigger than a bread box?

What took one and 1/2 hours to install?

What took 5 men to move?

What has the number 88 to do with this piece?

 

And, the art patron who answered the question…is it the grand  piano?  The lovely lady in black.  She graciously called for a round of applause, after listening to the piano stories  (past, current and future musical lives).

Irish Heather, Wicklow Gap.  Michael Muldoon, artist.

Comment on “Irish Heather”, from the artist:

Coming down out of the Wicklow Gap just southeast of Dublin into Glendalough, the site of St. Kevins stone church built in 633 The beautiful lavender heather Ireland is so famous for, and al ways the vagabond sheep traversing the narrow roadways…where else can you capture that sight?  The heather so vibrant, with its varying hues of greens strewn in and between the rocks.  I hope this rendering makes you want to go there, you will not be disappointed!  An incredible place with wonderful people.”  –Michael Muldoon

 

 

 

Connemara Morning.  Michael Muldoon, artist.

Roaming the Connemara countryside with no fences, competing on the narrow roads…truly these sheep, without any cares, are iconic Ireland!

Connerara Morning reflects just how the Connemara area of Ireland is; subdued hues of greens, weathered rock outcroppings, and hardy sheep everywhere and however slowly they wish to go!  A beautiful sight to behold, and one I know I would attempt to render on a canvas when I returned home.  Ireland…certainly a “terrible beauty” as described regarding their history with England and internal strife, but a real genuine beauty nonetheless.  Incredible place AND people!”  –Michael Muldoon

About the artist:

Growing up on the Oregon coast, traveling American and Europe throughout his career, Michael Muldoon fell in love with color and the way artists of all genres capture it on canvas.

Irish Lands through March, 2017.
