Courage in Color
Many of the most influential modern art movements relied on the daring, innovative, and often shocking use of color. Whether it was the bold and non-naturalist colors of Fauvism to the unmixed primary colors of the Impressionists to depict reflected light, these movements used color in new and courageous ways defying the accepted concepts of what constituted art. Gallery Underground asks artists to submit work which depicts their individual courageous use of color.
