Monochrome is the use of a single color in a work of art. This seemingly simple process introduces many challenges for the artist. For the photographer, it requires an entirely new way of seeing. For example, the colors red and green when translated into a monochromatic image look almost exactly the same because of their position in the color spectrum.
For the painter, variations of one color give an image form. It is a much more difficult task than simply adding a new color. For the sculptor, three dimensional shapes are vital to the final piece. The way light curves around a shape on a block of white marble gives it dimension. The challenge is to control those shapes from all viewing angles.
This exhibition demonstrates how 14 Palm Beach County artists have mastered this process in their own medium. Artists on display are Vincent Cacace, Joel Cohen, Misoo Filan, Mark Forman, Stephen Futej, Jacek Gancarz, William Halliday, Mimi Langlois, Kandy Lopez, Sally Ordile, Michael Price, Scherer & Ouporov, Thomas L Tribby and Harvey Zipkin.
