The Colors I’m Feeling
By Ana Elisa Benavent
About the Exhibit
I paint emotions, and I paint them in colors.
Joy, love, sorrow, frustration, excitement… a warm orange red cheers up a gloomy midnight blue… a big, bold jealous deep purple takes over… let’s invite a bit of white to make peace.
And so these large fields of color start talking to and playing with each other, layer over layer, foundation colors under translucent colors under contrasting colors, it’s all a moving target of shapes, lines, and textures. Rolling, brushing, dripping, spattering, slathering. They all add up to tell the story. My story, your story.
