An exhibition by International Artists
Curated by Rolf Goellnitz
Blue is the overwhelming “favorite color” of most people around the world. It’s also said that it is the least gender specific color and equally appeals to both women and men.
In color psychology ‘Blue” is associated with “Intellectual, intelligence, communication, trust, efficiency, serenity, duty, logic, coolness, reflection, calm.
Blue is the color of the mind and is essentially soothing; it affects us mentally, rather than the physical reaction we have to Red. Strong blues will stimulate clear thought and lighter, soft blues will calm the mind and aid concentration. Consequently it is serene and mentally calming. It is the color of clear communication. However, it can be also perceived as cold, unemotional and unfriendly.
Different shades of “Blue” are perceived also differently:
Pale Blue is considered to inspire creativity and the freedom to break free. One of the calmest colors, sky blue inspires selfless love and fidelity. It is non-threatening and promotes a helpful nature that can overcome all obstacles. It is regarded as the universal healer. Dark blue is the color of conservatism and responsibility. Although it appears to be cool, calm and collected, it is the color of the non-emotional worrier with repressed feelings, the pessimist and the hypocrite. Dark blue can be compassionate but has trouble showing it as its emotions run deep. Dark blue is a serious masculine color representing knowledge, power, and integrity, and is used quite often in the corporate world.
