Who's Afraid of Red, Yellow & Blue³

 
 
The enameled panels of Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow & Blue³ (2006-2007) and Primaries and Secondaries (2007) function as colored mirrors whose complex reflections enable us to see the world in a new light. At the same time, they spark interlaced art-historical connotations, from color theory to mid-20th-century Modernist abstraction. Referencing a canvas by Barnett Newman, Who's Afraid of Red, Yellow & Blue³ takes on the challenge of representing the three primary colors in a large immersive environment of three “rooms” formed by horizontal panels of color that rest on the gallery floor and suspended ceilings of color. Primaries and Secondaries explores relationships of primary and secondary colors through vertical panels of color.
