Farbenkugel will include a series of new works which investigate and expand upon the familiar image of the Academic Color Wheel, and the meaning it might carry throughout an artists life and career.
With Color Theory, there seems an almost infinite number of diagrams, charts, and organizational structures like wheels, spheres diamonds and pyramids. Yet in a broad sense, the academic Color Wheel signifies the language of visual art. It epitomizes and simplifies the artistic process, and equalizes the disciplines. Its circular (or spherical) form is codified and speaks to an almost immutable semiotics of color, and therefore points to our common perception. It fills a space for a conceptual self-reflexivity and in the end, the specificity of it speaks to art itself, and to the dialectic between form and concept.
