Color Sense

Print Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

CollexArt seeks artworks that express the artist’s ideas about color. In 1963, Josef Albers published the Interaction of Color which shared his idea that colors are “governed by an internal and deceptive logic.”  How an artist approaches color is personal and intuitive. Through study and personal insight, artists have an inherent sense of the interplay of colors in their work whether they are conducting abstract studies or using color to elicit associations.

Artists are asked to submit works that address the studied use of color, where color is a big part of the artist’s toolset and is what makes the work complete.  Accepting all original visual media excluding video and other time-based media such as animated Gifs. All styles and subject matter accepted.
