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 lime green.
Lime green is our color of the week because it’s pretty common to spot at the Miami fairs. Hint: It may have something to do with the key limes and palm trees. Corniness goes hand-in-hand with the color, too: You’ll always see palm-filled beach scenes at the fair, making a gallery look like they’re trying too hard. Everyone already knows they’re at the beach.
A balance between total peace and tackiness seems to be struck with this image sent to us from AFC’s Paddy Johnson. Since Saturday, our dedicated team of two—Paddy and Matt—have hunkered down at UNTITLED, where Paddy tipped us off to this forest scene with hints of lime green. Sherman’s painting is restrained in its use of the color, but we’re sure we’ll find more variations on lime green as the rest of AFC swoops down on Miami this week. With our powers at full force, we will seek out and surely find all the citrus-y green Miami has to offer.
