“Over the course of the presidential election, the use of color to denote opposing teams and movements became very apparent,” Joseph says. “Blue states/red states, pink hats, red hats. Color is highly effective as an easy symbolic device in these cases. But when the color orange became a meme as a result of the president’s misuse of self-tanner and hair dye, that’s when it became clear that we must re-appropriate the color orange and pay homage to its richness and complexity.”
Artists exploring the color orange include:
Janet Abrams, Tom Applequist, Rita Bard, Susanna Carlisle/Bruce Hamilton, Chris Collins, Sydney Cooper, Danae Falliers, Anne Farrell, Michael Freed, Charles Greeley, Nicola Heindl-Watson, Tim Jag, Jennifer Joseph, Isolde Kille, Ilona Pachler, Terri Rolland, Sarah Stolar, Lori Swartz, Bunny Tobias, John Vokoun, RJ Ward, Marion Wasserman, Ry Webster, and Todd Ryan White.
