CMYK9 art exhibit
While we know dogs have dichromatic vision (only able to see in two colours), Huisman has imagined their colour spectrum changing as dramatically as our lives over the last three years. Through her striking, one-of-a-kind portraits, Huisman asks: have emotional bonds with our pets helped us through some of our most challenging times?
This free exhibit runs until July 15. The artist reception will be on June 7 from 5 to 8 p.m. A pet cooling station will be at the gallery during Do West Fest on June 10 and 11.
As with Huisman's previous work, the pandemic pet photographs of CMYK9 are hand-painted, unique limited editions using a 19th Century technique called tri-colour gum bichromate. CMYK refers to the four colours used in this printing technique: cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black or palladium). K9, of course, refers to the show's canine friends turned models. This technique is reputed to maintain its quality for more than 500 years.
