Color Wheel is a series in which we identify a trending color in art for the week and post a daily image that illustrates its popularity. In honor of PandaCam, we’re continuing our black and white series. Readers are invited to send us images of profiled colors and we’ll post the best ones we receive.
By the strictest rules of Color Wheel, which continues to focus on black and white this week, Joshua Abelow’s painting “Blog Blog” at James Fuentes shouldn’t make the cut. It’s more black and grey than it is black and white, and we know we’re dealing with black and white. But fuck it. This is a self-portrait stickman with an erection who walks through the words “blog blog”. We like dicks, we like blogging, and we appreciate Abelow’s desire to rule the blogosphere. And based on Abelow’s cult-like following, we’d guess that’s a project that’s going pretty well.
