Artist Cj Hendry brings Pantone colours to life in this instagramable installation

Art lovers often design their homes around their collections, but artist Cj Hendry has upped the ante with her new exhibition, MONOCHROME.

The Aussie native has drenched all the walls of a dwelling she’s installed in a Brooklyn exhibition space in vivid colours to match the artwork she’s created for its walls. Each of the seven rooms has a different hue.

Says 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.’

Rooms inside the installation – housed in a 22,000 sq ft industrial space in Greenpoint – include a kitchen, bedroom and living room, made using modular blocks. Artworks feature crumbled Pantone colour squares which pop in their frames against each room’s garish shade, spanning the entire rainbow and applied to every surface.

In the study, a midcentury Eames recliner has been given a tangerine tint to match the desk, shelves, lamp and computer screen, while purple reigns in the bathroom.

MONOCHROME is playful riposte to Hendry’s previous body of work, which largely comprises black and white pen drawings of everyday objects. The instagramable installation picks up the baton from her 2017 collaboration with Christian Louboutin at Art Basel Hong Kong – her first foray into colour, which saw her create hyper-realistic artworks of paint blobs.
