Blue by Shawn Christopher
Violet, Indigo, and Blue from the series Roy G Biv

As children, it was how we remembered the colors of the rainbow:

red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.

Much like the rainbow itself, simultaneously simple and complex, I approached these paintings accordingly. This seven-painting series consisted of a blend of geometrical shapes and line work in an array of hues of any given color to create light and dark, shadow and highlight.

And most importantly, they were fun to make and look at.

Shawn Christopher‘s work can be seen at JoaT Studio in the 1627 Studios on Alberta Street in Portland, Oregon.
