Southold, NY: THE COLOR YELLOW, an exhibition of painting, sculpture, photography and the written word where yellow is the color of primary importance will open at Glen Hansen Studio, Saturday, April 2, 4:00-7:00 p.m. with additional hours on weekends 11:00-3:00 p.m. until Sunday May 15th or by appointment.
Given the seemingly unending quagmire and ups and downs of our last couple of years, Glen Hansen Studio desires to bring to the public an exhibition centered around a color that represents optimism, enlightenment, creativity, and the sun, (but on the darker side also symbolizes cowardice, disease, egoism, and madness.) In other words, a color that could well sum up this era.
Many a painter has complained about just how difficult it is to use the color yellow, Edgar Degas is known to have said, “What a horrible thing yellow is,” but, on the other hand, Turner saw yellow as light and it provided him with a way into enlightenment and the sublime. Josef Albers has said, “I was for years in the yellow period,” and Van Gogh was known to have said “How lovely yellow is! It stands for the sun,” and “Yellow is capable of charming God.”
