Keegan McHargue paints Big Eagle, video directed by Hélène Sevaux

The interplay between colors and how they bring out our emotions is very interesting to me. Not just in art, but in architecture and design and beyond as well.

I love how you can have a color, and by simply adding another next to it, the two independent colors both seem to change completely.

My personal palette has changed a lot over the years. When I was first exhibiting my range of colors was extremely limited and quite somber. As time when on my work enlivened to a near fever pitch of super rich, saturated color.

This became a hallmark of the work for a decade. Now I feel myself settling into a more nuanced, quieter moment color-wise. These days I feel more focused on depth of color more than range.
