Monochrome Artworks

Monochromatic art is simply defined. It is art which makes use of one color, often in different hues, in the creation of the artwork.

Monochrome in art is typically associated with a black and white color scheme. Black and white art shares with monochrome art an ambition to depict the world without the distraction of many colors, or through the prism of only very particular colors.

Throughout art history, and in contemporary art, monochromatic art has also consisted of other colors. Perhaps most famously, Yves Klein's series Blue Monochrome contained a number of depictions of the color blue using different hues and textures. In his seascapes, photo artist Douglas Busch uses single colors to a more realist pictorial end, depicting crashing waves and vast, atmospheric horizons.

Monochromatic color choices are also typical of minimalist art, which is marked by a preference for strong, simple forms, a geometrical bent in representation, and one or few colors.

The Curators' Palette: Monochrome Art

In considering monochrome art for your home decor, the actual color being staged is of prime importance. "Color" monochrome like reds or blues may be better suited to a bedroom, where it can set a mood of calm or relaxation. Black and white art can be featured in practically any room of the home, and is a popular choice for the home office, where distraction is the enemy.

The LUMAS portfolio contains a wealth of signed and limited edition art prints, which contain monochromatic landscapes by artists like Tatiana Gorilovsky and Irene Kung, as well as individual studies of wildlife, seascapes, and patterns.

Abstract Monochrome Art

Monochrome art is a natural home to abstraction. The turn away from the representational in art has been led by some of the same artists who found in pure color the way towards irreality or towards new realities. Kazimir Malevich was both a pioneer of abstract art and a leading student of color theory, who, like Wassily Kandinsky, sought in color theory a turn away from traditional representation. In his famous monochrome painting Black Square, and in a host of other monochrome paintings, he pursued a project of abstraction which relied heavily on monochrome color schemes. Other artists like the Americans Ad Reinhart and Mark Rothko, and the French painter Yves Klein used monochrome painting to pursue other possibilities, like the expression of certain emotional states, the freedom of pure color, or the possibilities of minimalism in art, founded on simple color and geometry.
