CJ Hendry Does Color!

One of Trendland’s favorite hyperrealistic artist, CJ HENDRY, known for her iconic black and white pen drawings of kitsch pop culture objects, is furthering her exploration of color.

Hendry first delved into color last year in collaboration with Christian Louboutin, which showed at Hong Kong Art Basel.

MONOCHROME is born into a 22,000 sq. Ft industrial space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Hendry has designed a seven-room home around the art hanging on the walls. You will walk through seven distinct rooms, each room consisting of only one monochromatic color.

Seven rooms, seven colors… this will be a visual feast for the senses.

“I am new to color, not too sure if I understand it yet. Before, when I drew in black ink all the focus was on the object because all the emotion of color was removed. Now I stare at my drawings and feel…just different I can’t explain it”.
— CJ Hendry

“Color is exciting and sad and frustrating and confusing. Color is all around us, it’s everywhere. Color is not a physical thing, it’s a thing that describes something else. By drawing crumpled colored cards I have given color a physicality and form.”
— CJ Hendry

“People generally buy art as the last item, they find art to match their home. I have become close with my collectors over the years and have noticed how differently they live their lives. Art is the first thing they add to a space and they design their entire home around their collection. I have taken this concept to an extreme level. Each room has been designed to emulate the art on the wall. The art is the focus, everything matches the art.”
