Purple is on side of a color range which exists between the primart colors red and blue. Purple denotes the side of this range which is closer to red, while violet describes that side which is nearer to blue.
Historically, purple was a rarer color, which was identified with royalty. Today, it is closely associated with attitudes of earnestness, and conveys an atmosphere which is less frenetic than pink, yellow, or other colors which are often taken as signifying optimism and friendly to efforts at concentration.
These characteristics of purple are well accessed by photo artist Douglas Busch, who creates warm and vivid seascapes with a painterly quality. Works by Werner Pawlok sometimes leverage purple to melancholic effect.
The Curators' Palette: Purple Art
As part of a home decor scheme, purple art is somewhat less versatile that art in other colors. Unlike red or green, for example, purple is not known for promoting more dynamic atmospheres. As such, purple is best suited to rooms which require stability above all, like a home office. As part of a bedroom art scheme, purple can be drawn on to promote an atmospherically neutral but aesthetically extremely rich environment. As part of your living room decor, purple art can stabilize a loud or busy space, transforming it into an atmosphere for calm reflection.
One of the most alluring choices for purple artworks is art created in the style of floral photography. Heiko Hellwig's Blossom series contains fascinating portraits of violet flowers. The painting-like photographs created through Bruce Boyd's fascinating method result in unrivalled floral still lifes. Explore these and more in our collection of flower art prints.
