Harry Moody’s “Abstract #327” consists of four primary colors that correlate directly with some strong psychological properties. Red is the longest wavelength in the color prism.  It has the property of appearing to be closer than it is and grabs your attention first.  Blue is believed to be the color of the mind and is essentially soothing, which creates relaxation.  Yellow is a relatively long color and essentially stimulating, in this case the stimulus is emotional.  Green is a color that strikes the eye in such a way as to require no adjustment and is therefore is restful.

To see Harry Moody’s paintings in person, be sure to visit the gallery before his solo exhibition “Untitled” closes on Saturday April 7, 2018.
