ORANGE FOG 3
Vague future of impressionism
In the past century, a wide range of new painting styles came into existence: impressionism and expressionism, abstractionism and cubism, minimalism and collage, action painting and color field painting… Look at beautiful action art online and explore the painting “Orange fog 3”, painted by Leonid Afremov. Fog contains droplets of water, which can actually reflect any color. This time it is orange. The painting is resonant in color, which is a little strange for a seascape. However, this is typical for impressionism.
Hiding in a fog or lost in it?
Impressionism does not portray reality, just like action painting, it portrays emotions. We can see a lonely ship in the orange fog. Fog symbolizes uncertainty the person feels when he does not know what direction to follow. He has an intuitive impression of being lost. It’s time to look for a guide. However, there can be different versions of its symbolical meaning:
Aperson might be scary of reality, and look to hide in a fog. It can happen so that the one does not want clearness.
One feels lost and does not know the direction in life.
Defiance of impressionism disappears
If you look for art online, you will discover that impressionism, just like action painting, abstract expressionism and conceptualism, is extremely popular among customers. At the same time, this is not a revolutionary art any longer. It does not express the defiance as it used to.
The most interesting feature of the painting is its color scheme and a bright sun that is shining through a fog. It is reflected beautifully in water, and this element gives hope for the future. There is an outline of another boat in the fog but it is hardly recognizable and can be a product of imagination only. Nevertheless, this characteristic suits the setting. Fog symbolizes indecision and inability to see the real state of things. Fog interferes with reality, spoils the plans and changes the future. Though we know about its occurrence, we are never ready for it. At this moment, we understand how fragile and vulnerable people are.

Impressionists tend to use vivid colors. They are more important than details on the painting. A combination of orange and yellow is always perceived well by the viewers - these are colors pleasing to the eye. Yellow also gives energy boost and emulates light and warmth. But, along with it, yellow gives restlessness and uncertainly. It also warns us to be careful.
