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

What did you do on the weekend??

On December 17 & 18, SUS 014: Sustainable Textiles: Sourcing & Direct Application students learned all about sustainable fabrics and fibers, how to dye them, and how to source them with Instructor Rachel Miller. Everyone walked away with beautiful colorful swatches and lots of notes.

It looked like educational fun, so I might see you in class this Spring!
