The color blue has a long and multifaceted history. Despite its different interpretations and symbolic meanings, blue connects to all humans on a fundamental level. We all have receptors that sense blue light–the kind of light that’s most present during the day. Sensing that light helps to set our circadian rhythm, as our bodies know when it’s time to be up and moving. Because of this, humans have been innately drawn to blue for millennia: assigning meaning to the color; categorizing and creating specific shades of blue; and of course, trying to render the blues of the natural world in artistic mediums. Throughout art history artists have explored the depths of blue, and all that it can evoke in viewers.
In celebration of Pantone’s Classic Blue, and the artists that have found inspiration in this color, SLATE presents our online exhibition: Pantone Classic Blue. A collection of photography, painting, and mixed media works, this exhibition features Juan Alonso-Rodríguez, Eric Bohr, Carol Inez Charney, Michael Cutlip, Phillip Griswold, Heather Jones, Maya Kabat, and Kerith Lisi.
