Rhymes with Sandinista? Do you ever follow a word or a picture to another link and down the rabbit hole that is the internet to a strange place. I found myself at:
chromist - a member of the Chromista, a large assemblage of protists that is assigned kingdom status by many systematists. The chromists include the diatoms, brown algae, and water molds. Biology: Life on Earth With Physiology by Audesirk, Audesirk, and Byers
Artists described as chromist probably are not being compared to brown algae. Think instead monochrome, polychrome - the use of color. More confusing is the word synchromist, an art movement dedicated to harmoniously balanced colors and a feeling of movement.
I have been told the the stark elegance of ancient Greek sculptures is the result of the wear and tear of ages and the originals where brilliantly colored - polychromed - like the religious sculpture in some orthodox churches. My life is more on the colorless side. How colorful is your life? How colorful do you really want it to be?
