Can you feel col­ors?

As an artist, she has been work­ing since 2004 on her way of cre­at­ive paint­ing, bring­ing emo­tions on can­vas. Her
paint­ings re­flect her cre­at­ive ima­gin­a­tion of vari­ous sens­ory im­pres­sions, which she per­ceives at the same time, and paints her art­works on can­vas in sev­er­al col­ors and dif­fer­ent tech­niques. She wants to il­lu­min­ate spaces with her works and cre­ate an at­mo­sphere.

Her artist­ic ques­tion is: Can you feel col­ors? Wheth­er you want to or not, col­ors af­fect our sub­con­scious and thus arouse cer­tain feel­ings: col­ors can cool or warm - im­part light­ness or heav­i­ness - give en­ergy or with­draw - relax or tauten - cause well-being or dis­com­fort - cause good mood or dis­com­fort. Each color has its own spec­trum of ef­fects: green has a re­lax­ing and sooth­ing ef­fect, yel­low has an ex­hil­ar­at­ing and stim­u­lat­ing ef­fect, red has an in­vig­or­at­ing and re­vital­iz­ing ef­fect.

Some people can mix dif­fer­ent sens­ory im­pres­sions. For ex­ample, they per­ceive col­ors and shapes when listen­ing to music. Oth­ers per­ceive col­ors as ma­ter­i­als, e.g. Fab­ric, sand, wood or metal. For oth­ers, col­ors can in­flu­ence the taste.

Even without the know­ledge of the power of col­ors, Cor­ne­lia Zick­ler's pic­tures in­vite you to go on a very per­son­al jour­ney of dis­cov­ery and let the vari­ous col­ors and color com­bin­a­tions of her art work on you. Try to enjoy the res­ult­ing sym­phony of feel­ings and find out how col­ors af­fect you and which col­ors you par­tic­u­larly ap­peal to.
