CollexArt Color Sense 2020

Purchase Award of $1,000*


We are always looking for artists whose work we wish to promote and support.

As we consider work for inclusion in CollexArt, we are interested in the idea and concepts behind your work and its execution. Factors such as prior accomplishments, education, the creation date of the work are not relevant in our selection process.

What inspires our curiosity may be unique to us, and therefore, not being selected should not be seen as anything other than not a match for our current selection criteria and mix of reviewers.

CollexArt seeks artworks that express the artist’s ideas about color. In 1963, Josef Albers published the Interaction of Color which shared his thought process that colors are “governed by an internal and deceptive logic.” The artist’s approach to color is personal and intuitive. Through study and/or personal insight, artists have an inherent sense of the play of color in their work whether they are involved in abstract studies or using color to elicit associations.

Artists are asked to submit work that addresses the studied use of color, where color is a big part of the artist’s toolset and is what makes the work complete. Subject matter is open.
