Surreal paintings by Joshua Petker that illustrate the emotive power of color and its ability to alter the mood of an image. I've been noticing lately how strongly I react to color in imagery, especially when juxtaposed with black and white..and I think it's definitely had an effect on my work and perceptions. But have I always responded this way? Has it always played a role sub-consciously? I'm not sure, but looking through all the images I've chosen to post for this blog, I'd probably have to say yes.
Also, Petker has a solo show coming up on April 17 titled 'Between Butterflies' at the Corey Helford Gallery in LA.Share
