A series of 100 “color studies,” in sequence 2.0 through 2.99.
Animation and publication forthcoming.
Composition 2 is series of 100 paintings produced sequentially, each one created on an identical matrix. The geometric composition is conceptually equivalent to the source code one might use in a computer program or web site. An identical visual framework is deployed to create many variations through simple modulations of hue and saturation. Through a process of repetition and experimentation the phenomena of color is revealed to the viewer with many different outcomes.
Color Studies 2010-2011 is a 120 page book with essay by media artist Patrick Lichty to be published in summer 2011. It is funded with an individual Artist Support Initiative grant from the Illinois Arts Council.
