Color exploration is one of those things that just can’t be pin pointed, and is never really finished. Artist Pae White has pretty much decided the same thing, and the latest work happens to be in Chicago. Titled “Restless Rainbow,” Pae deconstructs and re-evaluates what exactly would happen should anyone deconstruct a rainbow at all.
She asked herself the following before coming up with the organically striped area: “What would happen if a rainbow became disorganized—would it fall from the sky? What if a rainbow misbehaved, causing its color spectrum to take on new order? Would it include black, as rainbows in comic books often do?”
The result is circular, almost like a black hole; and as expected– Color is everywhere. She wanted guests to not only enjoy the Chi-Town skyline, but take in the space as a “riot of color” and watch their current space come to life with a ton of color infused walls and flooring. Her site-specific work for the Art Institute of Chicago’s Bluhm Family Terrace is a mind boggling, gorgeous use of color.
