The Painting Center presents Green: The Impossible Color featuring contemporary artists who exemplify this theme. Curator Rachael Wren brings together a group of works featuring the color of green in any of its manifestations. Green: The Impossible Color showcases works that explore the elusive color of green and its multifaceted nature. Of all the colors in the rainbow, green is perhaps the most mutable and multifaceted. As a color, it can lean towards yellow, blue, gray, or brown, while still remaining unquestionably itself. Green evokes associations of landscape and nature – everything from the palest new spring buds to the dark evergreens of deep winter. Yet it can also remind us of cities and the manmade – green glass skyscrapers, copper rooftops, the Statue of Liberty, and printed money. Emotionally, green has long signified envy, a pit of snakes coiled in the body. But add white and the color turns minty, suggesting more pleasant and peaceful states of mind. 

There is a catalogue available for this show.  Click here to view
