color contemplation

The Pace-Wildenstein Gallery is currently showing Robert Irwin's work, “Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow, and Blue?” The gallery is unlit except for the natural light streaming in through the ceiling. The panels of color—one suspended, one mirroring it laying on the floor—set a mood of reflection and color contemplation. I was particularly entranced by the blue panels, which seemd watery and almost metallic as you gazed at it.
