Color Therapy in Art - Colors for your Soul

Color is Light Energy that Affects Living Cells

This means that color can be used for healing and holistic practices dating back in ancient Egypt. Science have stated that light has its frequency and vibration, and we can take advantage of color therapy, by using it in our homes.

What is Color Therapy? It is simply an art of bringing overall wellness through the use of colors. The home is the perfect place to apply this concept, since it is the place where you rest, live and play - or work for some.

How to use Color Therapy? You can start by choosing colors that attract you and using it for your home's color scheme. It might surprise you that your body emits an energy field in colors, and what you don't like most is the color that is most abundant in your energy field. It may be hard when you like a lot of colors, but take that time to select your soul color.

What is the right color for you? If you are still having a tough time choosing that perfect color, look at the colors and observe the type of feeling a certain color gives you. If you want your bedroom to be comfy and vibrant at the same time, you can use neutral hues like cream, white and taupe to unify the colors. You can also do a collage of the colors you have chosen to see how the combination feels.

Colors and its Health Benefits:

Blue is a soothing color that gives a sense of peace and calm. The lighter it is, the better. In holistic practices, it is said to relieve anxiety, fever, and respiratory problem. This color is great for bedrooms and living areas. If you don't like blue, you can use red to balance it.

Red is the color of blood, and it is believed to help in blood flow and sexual drive. It is the color of strength and power. You may use this color discretely in your home by using accents of this shade.

Yellow is great for the nerves and promotes sharpness of the mind. It is a color that cleanses negative energy and toxins from the body. Yellow can also be chosen in the form of gold, which helps you feel assertive. This color is great for foyers, great rooms and living rooms.

Green is a color that balances all other colors. No wonder it feels good to have indoor plants inside the home. It makes you feel fresh, even on a 40 degree summer heat.

Orange is an energy booster and not too drastic like the color red. It is a color of creativity and joy, which can be perfect to brighten up that sad, boring space. You can use this color in your home office.

Violet is the color of wisdom, and it brings your mind and body to rest. This color is great for those suffering migraine or insomnia. For a feminine touch, hues of lavender can be used in the bedroom for that charm and serenity.

Review From Art Curator Giancarlo Von Nacher

About Paola González Artwork

Review from Art Curator Giancarlo Von Nacher

Paola Gonzalez Muñoz is a young painter who began her artistic journey at a very early age.

When working her way up in the artwork her first paintings were classified as figurative art, in the practice she developed her painting skills up to the point where she has mastered the abstract form of art.

This abstract form of art which is classified under the many different varieties of informal art is dependant to the inspiration under which the artist is driven to at the moment of such creation.

We could say that Paola’s technique when creating a masterpiece can be compared to that of Pollock’s “dell’ action painting” style, though her approach is very different due to certain changes during the evolving phases she has gone through during her artistic career. Furthermore, Paola’s paintings are more consistent to the art of the XXI century: to Pollock it was more important the randomness and the violent gesture in his paintings, and the ad-libbing in the process of his creations.

Once Pollock was finished with a masterpiece, according to him, such masterpiece will no longer have any significance or aesthetic value to him. This contradicts Paola’s convictions in all means, as to her the aesthetic value of a masterpiece is one of the most important factors, not to mention the previous planning when creating such artwork.

However, Pollock’s painting style is only one among the many varieties Paola carries out during her creations. Her radical variations in the process of creating an artwork do not follow any pattern in any way making these varieties never-ending: expressing themselves from the great “petreas” mountains, to compositions that capture certain naturalistic elements, to other aspects that even seem to be a thorough investigation of the microcosm, and some others to wide and spacious surfaces of a velvetish appearance. These particularly radical variations between an artwork from another, to a series from another, make her inexhaustible imagination and creativity unique.

Paola’s method when creating an artwork using oil and acrylic paint consists of splashing and dripping such substances with the aid of spatulas and brushes of her choice.

She is a typical western painter who strives to avoid the “horror vacui” from her creations, where as to the eastern painters they do on their compositions.
Maintaining the basis of the general abstract painting, Paola accentuates the “resonance” value of each color spot in every area of her composition, stressing out the force and importance of such art piece in the traditional value of every color within the combination of all shades and colors and the game these colors play as a whole combined together in harmony.

The effect of shades, tones, and other multiple chromatic combinations are clearly accentuated in most of Paola’s paintings, leaving the spectator fascinated by such delicate encounter and astonishing beauty.
