Power and Glory

Power and Glory: Abstract Art Paintings

This is a beautiful 48 X 36 sofa sized painting titled “Power and Glory“, by artist Joey Santiago. With just a couple of chalkboard push pins, this painting is ready to hang and is protected by 2 coats of medium gloss varnish. Abstract art paintings!

Power and Glory equals black, red, and white!

This week, I decided to listen to “Queensrÿche” operation mind crimes while creating this bad boy.  Hey I was in a rock’n mood so I decided to create something different a la John Beckley style. Abstract art paintings!

 Again, I went with my 3 favorite contemporary color combos; black, red, & white. There’s nothing more quite energetic, then sitting in a white wall, black leather sofa environment. Some people think of the color black as being sad or evil. Some people think of the color white as being pure or boring. Some people think of the color red as being violent or disturbing. My personal feeling is that by combining these 3 elements of color, a balance of power and glory are created instead. Also, the combination of black and white is widely known as a powerful color scheme. In Asian culture, red is traditionally used as a symbol of good luck, happiness and joy hence red is often selected for festive occasions like wedding ceremonies and during the New Year’s holiday.

Since red is representative of vigor and fire, decorating with red in the home is equally powerful for drawing positive energy while black and white provide the complementary balance and unity of Yin-Yang (dark – light) in a living space. Abstract art paintings!

Much of the paintings that I have created contain the color red and coincidently speaking, most of the paintings that I have sold contain the color red. Don’t ask me why, it’s just a given and a point well proven. Abstract art paintings!
