Let the joy of color push your creativity to new heights - RED color

Painting by Jane Monica Tvedt

The Color Red

The color red is the color of energy, passion and action

This color is a warm and positive color associated with our most physical needs and our will to survive. It exudes a strong and powerful masculine energy.

Red is energizing. It excites the emotions and motivates us to take action.
It signifies a pioneering spirit and leadership qualities, promoting ambition and determination. It is also strong-willed and can give confidence to those who are shy or lacking in will power.

Being the color of physical movement, the color red awakens ourphysical life force. It is the color of sexuality and can stimulate deeper and more intimate passions in us, such as love and sex on the positive side or revenge and anger on the negative. It is often used to express love, as in Valentine’s Day, however it relates more to sexuality and lust, rather than love – love is expressed with pink.

Rødt er den mest energiske fargen i naturen og stimulerer og varsler. Rødt er også den viktigste fargen som symbol og markør med ulik betydning i kulturen. Det finnes en mengde røde fargenyanser med egne navn.Ordet rød het rauðr  gammelnorsk og stammer fra rudhira som på det gamleindiske språket Sanskrit betød «blod».

Rødt er blodets farge og er den sterkeste av alle farger. I løpet av et hundredels sekund klarer vi å oppdage den. Rødt signaliserer blodet, muskler, kraft, energi, pasjon og varme. Og det er derfor den ofte blir brukt på teatre, «den røde løperen», i sportssammenhenger etc. Rødt stimulerer til diskusjon, argumentasjon og stimulerer adrenalinet.

"Let the joy of color push your creativity to new heights." 
- Mel Grunau

At its most positive it can create life with its sexual energy, or use its negative expression of anger and aggression to fuel war and destruction.

The color red can stimulate the appetite, often being used in restaurants for this purpose. It also increases craving for food and other stimuli.

Being surrounded by too much of the color red can cause us to become irritated, agitated and ultimately angry. Too little and we become cautious, manipulative and fearful.
In Eastern cultures such as China red is the color for good luck. Although times are changing and many Chinese brides now wear white, it is traditionally the color for weddings. In Indian culture it symbolizes purity and is often used in their wedding gowns.

“If I could tell you about Red

I would sing to you of fire Sweet like cherries
Burning like cinnamon Smelling like a rose in the sun”
