The Loyola Art Show- A Gulf Coast Art Experience

AK Hardeman

AK Hardeman

As an artist AK is interested in the interaction of color; how the arrangements of colors create a work of art. She uses acrylic and oil paints, oil pastels, colored pencils, and paper to create her work on canvas and paper.

Color affects appetite, vision, sexuality, design, art, emotions, and myriad aspects of life that impact the very psychology of people. Color is expressed in all of our surroundings, especially in nature and science. Colors can be complementary, harmonizing, adjacent, or they can contrast and clash. Color is the central theme of her work. AK focuses on colors that express her emotions and feelings in an image that leaves the viewer room to interpret. 

There is rarely a point AK tries to get across, a statement she tries to make, or a system of signs she wishes to give a message or meaning. She is simply interested in the use of color and aesthetic freedom. AK tries to create the semblance of an object that gives rise to the viewer’s own emotions and feelings. Her goal is for viewers to invent and unravel their own meaning.
