Ole Ingolf Jensen Nyrén (tr. Careen Shannon)

Ole Ingolf Jensen Nyrén, Ph.D (1945-2015), was an artist, color chemist, conservator, lecturer and author, and worked with color for more than 40 years. Born in Denmark, he both studied and taught at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and lectured at art schools in Scandinavia, Austria and Italy. He also regularly gave lectures on the work of the Danish-born philosopher and mystic, Martinus. He later moved to Sweden, where he earned his doctorate from the Institute of Conservation at the University of Gothenburg in 2001. He continued to research and lecture at the University of Gothenburg until his death in 2015. ----- Careen Shannon is an attorney, writer, and former adjunct professor of law. She is the author of dozens of articles, and the co-author of several books, on topics related to U.S. immigration law. She has also written opinion pieces for The Hill, a Washington, D.C.-based political newspaper and website, and the popular press, including Salon, Ms. Magazine, and POV International, a Danish web magazine. She is an amateur linguist and polyglot with a special interest in the Danish language. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

This book deserves to be read slowly. It contains so much…. It is a feat to possess all the wisdom that lies behind this book, and the author clearly demonstrates that he has great vision and has attained knowledge from many different sources.

Ewamarie Herklint, Doctor of Architecture, architectural historian and author (Sweden)

This work stands out from other books on the subject by not only discussing and expanding upon known color themes, but also by grappling with the question of what colors really are. The principal answers are largely drawn from the cosmology of Martinus, but the author also calls upon anthroposophical and theosophical sources. The book is of high quality in terms of both its artistic and educational content, and with the author's own and other beautiful symbols and images, it provides a deep understanding and experience of an otherwise difficult subject. In the future, I believe it will be on many course syllabi, due to its boundary-expanding description of and wisdom about colors. The reader of this work can expect a color-orgasmic experience….

Poul Dyrholm, painter and retired advertising consultant and educator (Denmark)

Description

We experience the world as if it were full of color, but in fact colors themselves have no color. Colors come about when the energy of light reacts against the energy of our consciousness.

Drawing on scientific color theory as well as on the human and cosmic sciences––the latter based on the teachings of the Danish-born philosopher and mystic, Martinus––author Ole Jensen Nyrén takes readers through an analysis of color in everyday life, culture, art, nature, philosophy, dreams, auras, the soul, and the very structure of the universe.
