As artists, we eat, breathe, and sleep colors - or the lack thereof. We know their power to evoke emotions and the rest of globalized world does too. More often than not, we associate colors with different entities; sometimes memories and even people themselves. Through this Birktone series, I explored this notion and satirically pay homage to the most famous color company in present day: Pantone. Much of the work that pervades this series depicts pop cultural icons and social phenomenons. Each piece looks as though it is a Pantone swatch from afar, but as you near, the signature Birk. designs become more apparent. The subject matter enables the observer to think of color in a new yet austere way.
