A few days ago, I dropped in to see Alix Akele’s artwork currently hanging in the lobby of Kaufman Arcade in the Garment District of NYC.
There’s something very calming about the way these colors are blended across this painting, which is odd because orange is one of those shades that’s known to raise blood pressure. I’ve always believed this concept in color psychology was true, especially when mixed with other vibrant colors like bright pink, as it is here.
This might be the only exception.
Perhaps the small bits of light and smoky dark blue in the middle and towards the bottom that even this out, putting the feel back in tranquil mode.
Whatever it is, this is definitely a sunset I’d chase.
