Sonia Aimee Hansen
Study in Blue and Black
This abstract original print finds an aesthetic balance of form and design through the use of basic shapes and color. Cubist elements are significant to this work by artist Sonia Aimee Hansen that were typical of the early twentieth century. Hues of blue are prevalent to signify the ground, horizon, and apparent automobile that appears in the foreground. Black is the additional part of the color composition, forming the architectural structure in the background and it accentuates portions of the automobile. A combination of blue and black are used to cross hatch the ground.
