Too Colourful by Hunter Madsen

Too Colourful


The viewer carries within memory a sense of the expected relationship between certain classes of object and certain ranges of colour.  At what point does colour alienation go too far, triggering an emotional rejection of the image for reason of frustrated expectation?  At what point does the mind shift from the impulse to debunk the presented reality, toward acceptance of the image as an attractive fiction that is taking appropriate liberties for legitimate aesthetic aims?
