Colorful Abstract Art

Contemplate the integration of colors and shapes.

Both have subtle meanings that affect our moods.

“Color is the place where our brain and the universe meet.”

–Paul Klee





How do shapes and colors affect emotions?

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way—things I had no words for.”

—Georgia O’Keeffe


Captivating color fields and shifting shapes bring life to colorful abstract art. Many people double-take looking at these, not realizing that these could be photos.

I stood in a tunnel that was painted with colors and lines. Perhaps it was the city’s answer to fighting graffiti. Then I got to thinking, ‘what if.’

What if I put my camera in motion? What would happen? I was mesmerized by how the primary colors with somewhat geometric shapes took on gradients of tones. I took hundreds of photos. Then I worked through the myriad of them to find where shapes spoke to me.  

Are you conscious of how shapes and colors affect your emotions? Studies have shown that patterns and lines impact us.
