Color Wheel is a series in which we identify a trending color in art, and post a daily image that illustrates its popularity. This week’s color is orange.
Yayoi Kusama’s current exhibition up at David Zwirner has been getting attention for the long lines to her room-sized installations, her infinity rooms that look like they’re filled with stars and tentacles. Alongside these Instagram-friendly rooms, there’s dozens of new, very bright orange paintings. Orange eyes, limbs, and sunsets snake across these canvases; it’s some of her best work.
