"Christmas sweaters are only acceptable as a cry for help." ~ Andy Borowitz
So what to wear instead of the Christmas sweater – and what’s with this colour malarkey?
Colour has been viewed over the centuries by physicists, philosophers, mathematicians and artists and all have come up with their own theories about how colours interact with each other, with our senses and with the world around us. Light and sound both have frequency and wavelength. We have known for centuries that when we hear two notes played in harmony, it sounds pleasant, but when we hear discordant notes the sounds jars and makes us feel uncomfortable. The same applies to light and, therefore, colour. When a colour combination is harmonious, whether that is with another colour or with someone’s skin tone, it is pleasing to view, making a person look healthy and clear skinned. But when that colour is a ‘discordant note’, it makes for something that is visually uncomfortable, which in the context of someone’s complexion means a person looking unhealthy, tired or even a bit jaundiced.
Come along to my open evening on Friday 13 November and find out more about the science of colour. You will also get some information about personal and clothing styles. Enjoy a glass of wine and some home baked treats at my studio outside Carrickmacross. The information evening will begin at 20:00 and will take about an hour and a half.
Let me know if you’re planning to attend so that I can send directions and I look forward to welcoming you.
