MFA Art & Humanities

Ruaridh Lever-Hogg

Each person has their own unique character, commonly they all show their emotions through the colours unconsciously. From the perceptive of colours, you can’t identify the real person without character. You can only look into their eyes to uncover their emotion and philosophy, like the famous quote saying, “Eyes are the window of the soul.” When you look at the portraits, you naturally make an eye contact with this person and it tells you everything about them. In each painting, I pull all the true character out of them through the specific choices of the colours. I believe that the colours have the crucial role to display the real character as the colours has two sides of a balance of life which is positive and negative. There are always have bit of both sides in each colour. I believe we all need the colours because colour is life.
