Pink as an Experiment
Artists are expected to have a specific style. Art galleries love it. This way you are a safe sale. But this never made sense to me. One of the major joys I find in being an artist is exploration and play. Plus, I don't know about you, but I'm not the same person I was 6 months ago so why would I want to paint the same way I did then? As I was feeling particularly rebellious one week, I decided that I would paint in several different styles, with all of those styles sharing a specific color. I chose pink. Pink is typically thought of as a very feminine color. I wondered whether I could make it feel grungy, modern, sophisticated, or anything else other than just feminine. These are the paintings that resulted from this experiment.
