I am fascinated with some of Nick Knights work and I came across these series of images titled ‘Explosions’ I love how he has captured paint exploding and by using multiple pots of paint the explosion mixed a lot of the colors together creating some beautiful images. While Nick was trying to convey some type of challenging approach to something as he normally does, I decided to completely ignore what his reasons were behind these images and I concentrated on how it made me feel and I started to think about how the colors made me feel, which is something I am very interested and intrigued about. We reference emotions or feelings by the use of color so much especially in film, fashion, makeup- For example, the red lip is considered powerful, daring or seductive, which are all feelings. I think this will be a great concept for my fashion film as it is such a vast subject to research and I could really explore different ways/meanings towards colour.
