Into the Unknown: Crème de la Crème

Into the Unknown is a collaborative series with other artists depicting colors.


Colors often mean different things to different people. Between artists depending on cultural influences, life, worldview, morals and values this can all heavily impact the way they see and use colors in their art.


Why is this important? This is important because like I stated earlier, colors mean different things to many different people and cultures. Color represents so much: feelings, people, countries, cultures, and symbolism. It is fascinating to learn about other's perspectives and give new light to different things. Color is something most of us see and deal with on a daily basis. Yet not much thought always goes into how we react to certain colors, why we favor certain colors or don't, or why certain colors make us feel the way we do.


Needless to say~

Different colors evoke different feelings for different people.


In this project I have asked each artist to pick one color that they felt a strong connection to. I had them design their own set, answer a questionnaire to help inspire them and to take on the feeling of that color. So they get to portray the color they pick, and then I get to do my job and capture the essence of that feeling, and hopefully bring it some justice.


Today I am sharing the first Color from this series. Along with the thoughts and reasoning's behind why this color was selected.

Cream : Crème de la Crème


This color is featuring the artist: Ashton Hall



What does this color mean to you?


Delicate, soft, non-intrusive, femininity, the mother, still and quiet.



What does it make you feel when you wear it? Why do you like wearing it, or why do you not like wearing it?


I like to come at situations with neutrality. Wearing this color helps me pool that energy.

I like to wear cream tops, dresses and pearls. As a person I like to be free, open minded, and non- decided. I feel more pure when wearing this color like seeing life through the eyes of a child.



What emotions do you associate while collaborating in this piece? Is there something you intend to convey about it?


I feel content and calm when wearing cream. Delicate like a pearl, it conveys my feminine side. Since I am sensitive and I upset easily I like to wear this color to convey neutrality, purity, and openness in all given situations.



Do you remember at what age you were attracted to this color, if so: what made you attracted to it? What feelings, thoughts or metaphors do you pull towards it? Or the Opposite.


I've felt attracted to cream ever since I was a small child. Growing up in a household that had a lot of conflict and as a person that is more introverted I need a lot of alone time and quiet. I feel the color cream holds a vibration I need in my life; one which is still and solid. Metaphorically cream is similar to a canvas that has yet to be painted on.



What do you associate this color with in nature?


Atmosphere/Clouds, Air

Life giving aka: eggs, cum, breast milk



Do you think it is a popular color? Why or why not?


Most people I've told my answer to think cream isn't an exciting color. It's muted but that is why it's beautiful to me. Cream is the color that gives/ creates life itself.








The pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of queens



Thank you for checking in, STAY TUNED for the next color in this series
