Monochrome is usually associated with describing black and white images. In reality, it could be used to describe varying shades and tones of just one color. New York-based artist C.J. Hendry is notorious for her awesome black & white images of all things pop culture related. She switched up from her usual black & white visuals and decided to bring a pop of Monochrome color to Brooklyn last weekend. Smack dab in the middle of an abandoned warehouse, a colorful art space was created. Hendry’s “Monochrome” art exhibit was on full display and open for public viewing.
Monochrome was a colorful, 6-room exhibit that was designed to catch the eye. Each room was separated with color matched Everblocks that created the walk-thru exhibit space. The blue, red, green, yellow, pink, purple, and orange layouts were totally set up in their respective colors with everything painted and arranged in varying shades. Each room played host to a selection of pencil-sketched pieces that resembled crinkled up Pantone swatch cards. Aside from taking color to the next level, her inspiring and creative vision gave creatives a little motivation to do things different. People from all over came out to catch the exhibit. Some people even dressed the part to match the colors on rotation.
This exhibit drew thousands of people over the course of its 3-day run. People waited on line for 3-4 hours just to see it and some didn’t even get in. We were luck enough to catch a glimpse. Check out some of our images below and visit Hendry’s Instagram page for additional images.
‘People generally buy art as the last item, they find art to match their home. I have become close with my collectors over the years and have noticed how differently they live their lives. art is the first thing they add to a space and they design their entire home around their collection. I have taken this concept to an extreme level. each room has been designed to emulate the art on the wall. the art is the focus, everything matches the art.’ – C.J. Hendry
