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.
Orange is the color of hard work (or the appearance thereof). From under-construction signs to the Home Depot logo, it’s there to let you know you’ve got to put on your protective gear. It’s also the color the advisory services—from weather to terror—use to tell you “watch out.”
Harry Dodge’s sculptures look like they were made to fall apart nod to that under-construction aesthetic. Concrete, 2 x 4’s, spray paint—all stuff you’d get from your local hardware store—make up his less-than tidy work.
