ABOUT SHAFTISM ... Page 2
Let us look
closely at colour and their compositions, for to be a Shaftist is also to know and appreciate colour and the
effects it can create in Shafting the colour on the canvas.
A true picture encompassing Shaftism is where the
colour itself is the picture and work of art; this brings us to understanding how colour works, and can affect
the viewer of the artwork. We see only colours that do not absorb particular wavelengths.
For example, the
blue paint on a canvas appears blue because its molecules have absorbed all the colours in white light except
blue. The black paint absorbs light of all wavelengths, and the white reflects all visible light of all
wavelengths. This is why a picture encompassing Shaftism, has as a general rule a black background.
black mantle has a calm affect on the mind as the eye needs to take in less information and can focus on the
colour, that is cast upon the canvas.
A clever Shafted picture will at once be radiating tranquility and good
vibes. This is due to the colours.
Colour is all around us, and it is part of our every day lives. We could live without colour, but the mere
thought of our existence in such a case is too ghastly for words. If you think about it we have in many
cases come to associate colour with certain objects, and think of it as a possession of the object.
example, blue sky, white clouds, green grass, red roses, golden sands etc. Each of these will appear to be
of the same colour so long as the same light illuminates it. But of course self-luminous bodies, like a flame
will, when under the same conditions, give the same colour.
In short, the colour of an object depends upon the
light it emits or sends back to the eye, and if part or all of this light is reflected light, the colour must
depend upon the nature of the original light that fell upon it.
