Artist's Description

I have personal color significance and symbols in my art therapy work.

Red: red is sometimes anger but mostly it symbolizes strength, stamina, self worth and positive inner feelings.
Blue and shades of purple symbolize birth rights such as the right to feel safe, the right to speak, the right to say no, the right to LIVE.
Green – growth
Yellow- cowardly acts, fearfulness, weakness, filth and deplorable acts.
Orange (mix of red and yellow) = ambiguity
The color black has come to mean that something or someone is hollow, empty or lifeless.
White – in art therapy only usually symbolizes a perforation, splitting, explosion or implosion.

The painting called Resolution is an original acrylic and oil painting on 6 × 9 heavy paper. If one goes by color code alone then the painting would show strengthened figures walking out of hollow, empty, stress filled cave on the brink of falling in on itself. The figures around show all the emotions that anyone would feel when they walk away. They may not be starting over, just leaving behind what needs to be cut off. The floor the strengthened figures walk on is a ‘slippery’ one. It is of blue, white and black. Will they emerge with the right to be? Without a doubt they will.
