Harmony, Intonation and Freedom

An exhibition of paintings by Henriette Engels and Valerie Panayotopoulou

HARMONY is derived from the Greek word, ‘Armonia,’ meaning ‘Agreement’ and this is expressed in art by a mix of blended colours on a palette to produce a harmonic image through the use of colour, texture, line, space, form, balance and movement, all working together in harmony.

INTONATION is the changes in sound produced by the rise and fall of the voice especially when this has an effect on the meaning of what is being said. In painting, the word ‘Intonation,’ can be used to conjure up a description of colour and mood, to promote tranquility or unrest and heighten contrasts by our perception of what is portrayed on the canvas and what the painting ‘says’ to us.

FREEDOM in painting is to not fear experimenting with texture, colour, tone, form and brushstrokes. To be able to create a spontaneous image and to express oneself through art without following rules and to let the mind flow freely. Freedom of mind releases creativity and allows innermost feelings to be expressed on canvas.
