EUCROMY

WATERCOLOURS BY MARGA BAIGORRIA

Eucromy is the art of tuning ourselves entirely with the high therapeutic and fulfilling properties of colour.

EUCROMY - COLOUR & CREATIVITY

One of the main projects that the Academy is involved in, is the relationship that exists between Sound, Colour and Form. In the same way that Euphony illuminates and deepens the meaning of Sound and Music, a sort of neologism arises in Colour-Light that can be called Eucromy. That is to say, the power, meaning and aesthetic of Light, and the perception of Colour. The natural world is a kaleidoscope of luminous colours, from the galactic supernovas to the marvellous polychromy that exists among birds (their feathers), within the vegetable kingdom (especially flowers and fruits) and in the fantastic luminous densities of the mineral world (its stones and metals).

The pictorial creation elevates the imaginative use of colour and forms to Art, unfolded in every angle of the planet, from the old civilizations through to our time.

Eucromy is therefore presented as an experience of Colour as energy, in cohesion with sound and form, which provides vital stimulation and possesses properties of creativity, therapy and self-realisation.

The workshops dedicated to 'Colour and Culture' cover an intense range of chromatic exercises-experiences and forms, capable of awakening expressive skills and of unfolding the creative imagination and intuition.

The stages of Eucromy Education are: looking, seeing, perceiving/observing, and contemplating.

 

WHAT IS EUCROMY?

Marga baigorria holds Eucromy workshops, a subject which she created and developed in 1983.

The term Eucromy is a neologism. It is not possible to express new perceptions with inadequate words or words filled with meanings distorted by time. When we say ‘photochromy’, even though this term is used in photography, we are saying colour-light or light-colour. The syllable eu expresses a state of consciousness that is possible for everyone to attain: goodness, beauty, truth. Eucromy means to unveil the deep sense of colour as light.
Each one of us possesses, in our own nature, a reality constituted by essences of light that is revealed symbolically and coherently assumes adequate forms. Our perception is a constant game of light and shadow, of perspectives and volumes, of spaces and times where Colour clarifies a panorama, a landscape, allowing psychological and aesthetic shades to surface which can be transmuted into Art.

Eucromy presents itself as an experience of the world as colour, without forgetting the close cohesion with sound and form, and therefore the accent is put on the vast psychophysical scope of the colour energy in relationship to the human being. The chromatic world can awaken the creativity that lay hidden in us. One of the most important characteristics of colour is the vital stimulus that it communicates.

The practical experience of Eucromy synthesises ancient and contemporary knowledge related to the properties of Colour, in meditation, in exercises for the development of creative imagination, in psychophysical experiences suitable for the dissolution of emotional and physical tension with the help of colour-light, and finally, to attain a global conscience of the use of colour in Visual Art.

With Eucromy the International Academy of Euphony utilises one of the most important approaches to a Science/Art based on direct knowledge, with the help of the intuitive mind.
