Green has both a warming and a cooling effect. While incorporating the calming quality of blue, it also exhibits the energy of yellow. The colour directly alludes to nature, energy and growth. Here Julian decomposed the dominant pigment of the painting into yellow and blue, alluding to its contrasting effects. Through manipulation of shades of green and geometric shapes, this work exhibits a rhythm, re ecting on the process of music arrangement, creating powerful re ections of human emotion.
When viewed from a distance, colours blend resulting in a chromatic vibration. This technique could be compared to Pointillism, pioneered by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac. The Pots- Impressionist artists arranged dots of colour in patterns to form an image instead of blending the colours on a palette.
The work invites the spectator to immerse in colour by approaching it closer to view the texture.
