Year in Color 2011 (52 weeks + a day)

Carol Ladewig

Acrylic/gouache on 365 canvas panels (each panel is 6 x 6 in, varying depth of 3/4 inch to 1.5 inches) overall dimensions: 7 feet x 13 1/2 feet. The days hang in units of 14 days.

This is the first work in the Year in Color series.  I decided to document the year using six inch canvas panels.  The colors were derived from mixing several varieties of red, blue, yellow, and white. The color for each day began with the previous day's color, and developed from responses to events, coupled with a curiosity about and love of color.

Love this work and the transition from cooler colors on the left to warmer on the right. It makes me wonder how the year progressed. Right or wrong I interpret the right hand side of the painting with a happier mood. Maybe that says more about me than anything else?

Hi Eliza,

The shift which I didn't see until I had put it altogether, surprise and delighted me, think it reflects the change of seasons and places, the colors in Fall going to Winter become deeper and darker.  I worked both in Oakland and in the Berkshires.
