Answer: COLOR BLOCKING.

Color Blocking Westminster Dog Show and Fall 2012 Ready to Wear NYCWondering where designers get ideas for Fall 2012? The neutral color blocking going on in New York’s Fashion Week and continuing in the European shows, have a lot of similarities to the Westminster Dog Show. Martha Stewart’s dog won the First Prize (see ribbon). We are seeing lots more faux and real fur, textural knitted accessories and lots of fringe in the colors of these naturally beautiful pedigreed dogs.

COLOR FIELD SPOT PAINTINGS BY DAMIEN HIRST

THE COLOR CORNER

 

Damien Hirst’s Twenty –five of Color Field Spot Paintings and Graphics at Gagosian Galleries Worldwide – Color is alive and well in each aspect of our lives.  This is about the way that you perceive color and use it daily in each global setting. Some of this theory is based on Josef Albers and other colorists. The scale, composition, hue, value, background color and juxtapositions make a successful painting.

I was always a colorist, I’ve always had a phenomenal love of color… I mean, I just move color around on its own. So that’s where the spot paintings came from—to create that structure to do those colors, and do nothing. I suddenly got what I wanted. It was just a way of pinning down the joy of color. —Damien Hirst
