The much-overdue day has finally arrived – 2013 Wall Calendars are here, and bigger and brighter than before – measuring 18″ x 12″ and spanning 16 months (November ’12 – February ’14), they will make quite the colorful splash on your wall of choice.
NOTE /// due to damage from Hurricane Sandy, I will not be able to ship any prints until power and transit has been restored in NYC. But I felt it best to release the calendars sooner rather than later, so feel free to order at this time and I will ship as soon as I possibly can.
In this year’s collage prints, individual diptych photos become colored pixels as part of a larger image – at a short distance you see the individual images, but from afar the ’2013′ emerges from the page:
The process of color printing relies on overlapping layers of cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y) ink dots to create patterns which our eyes understand as text and images on the printed page. Based on the concept of the CMYK color model, this CMYK series also starts with a white background and yields black as the result of combining the 3 process colors.
Electronic devices and displays rely on various arrangements of tightly-packed red (R), green (G), and blue (B) lights to create patterns which our eyes understand as images on the screen. Based on the concept of the RGB color model , this RGB series also starts with a black background and yields white as the result of combining the 3 colored light sources.
and the return of last year’s ROYGBIV calendar in the new format, offered as a horizontal and vertical print:
It may not be a double rainbow, but this series is still pretty bright and vivid. What does this mean? Well ROY G. BIV is the acronym for the colors of the electromagnetic spectrum and these 154 diptychs were pulled for their colorful qualities.
