ON THE DESERT: THE DISCOVERY AND INVENTION OF COLOR will move beyond the gray-scale and set the color wheel spinning across the desert.
Color is everywhere ‘on the desert’, but, also under the desert, and over the desert. It is earth, plant, air.
Color, like the desert, is so many things: pigment, dye, organic, inorganic, natural, synthetic, primary, secondary, tertiary, monochromatic, complementary, analogous, achromatic, tint, value, hue, local, expressive, light, dark, symbolic, spectral, harmonious, discordant, aggressive, receding, etc.
ON THE DESERT: THE DISCOVERY AND INVENTION OF COLOR will move beyond the gray-scale and set the color wheel spinning across the desert; picking up, absorbing, and reflecting every color imaginable, discovering new color combinations, and inventing new theories on how color works in the desert southwest.
Artists are asked to consider the moment they discovered the dazzling and subdued color of the Sonoran Desert, how the desert’s countless colors affect the earth, plant-life, and sky and, how the rare properties of those colors have led each artist to the invention of an individualized palette and approach to making art. Color is infinite, the possibilities are endless. Artists from the region are invited to submit 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional works in any media for consideration in this curated exhibition.
