“i never refer to these painted objects as sculpture and i trying not to refer to them as paintings. i refer to them as objects almost in the way that donald judd would refer to his as specific objects. so they are coloured objects.” – stephen prina

ever since last monday’s post on the manipulations of color in satellite imagery i’ve been thinking about false-color images, those abstract expressionist documents used to show vegetation density.  these false color images look almost like a guillermo kuitca painting.  then later in the week, david john posts about the pantone color of the year [1], honeysuckle, and the boundary between furniture and buildings.  he opens by remarking, “when buildings become furniture, become movable, become paintings, become stories, becomes a color, become memories.”  inspired by this, i’ve moved from regions, to locales, to buildings, to walls, to furniture, to objects natural and man made.

 

happy trails.

notes

[1]     in the spirit of random associations:  maybe it’s because i’m watching tomic v djokavic and tsonga v federer while writing this, coupled with the fact that i have been reading david foster wallace, but the concept of a pantone color of the year makes me think of infinite jest.
