Colour is a powerful communication tool. It has been shown to influence mood as well as elicit physiological reactions. New Zealand’s ubiquitous yellow-and-black COVID signs are evidence that colour can even trigger changes in behaviour.

But what is it about vibrant colour that draws us in or, in some cases, repels us? Do we respond to colour depending on our emotional state? Do cultural and situational factors – for example political environment – have an effect? Are we affected by colour in different ways at times of stress or upheaval?

As our homes increasingly become havens; places to retreat from the ‘dangers’ of the outside world, we’ve started to wonder here at TMG whether Colour might actually be Therapy. And as we head into Autumn, we are pleased and proud to present a glimpse into the imaginations of four artists whose vibrant, joyful, colourful, thoughtful, exuberant, glorious and intelligent painting might be just what we all need.
