Chromatic variations on the side of life…
…against war and pandemic
This post may come as a surprise since graphically expressive work is not a mainstay of mine, except that the contextual circumstances of war and pandemic sent me searching for what emotional support colour can provide.
My party pris is of course that formal design can communicate through association with certain forms such as flag design and national identity, certain colours with attitudes such as being square about something, and the combination of form and colours with existential realities such as life and death.
The motivation for this post is issued from a life long search for a harmonious relation to a world sometimes quite cruel.
Talk till…In the face
War and peace
On the side of life…till the end
