Art Every Day, Tuesday, March 12, 2013
Here is today's new piece. It is the final in this three day exploration of using color on black or white backgrounds. With this piece, I split the background, half black, half white. Note how the width of the strips seem to change depending upon what color they are on. Look at the red that is about three quarters of the way up and begins on the black half, the portion that is in the white look a bit narrower. Look at the light blue that is just beneath the middle and begins on the white side, the portion in the black seems wider than the portion in the white. Black tends to bring out color thus making it look larger while white tries to make color submissive therefore making it seem smaller. Background matters.
