Artist CJ Hendry Creates Monochrome “House”

WORDS Lindi Brownell Meiring IMAGES Andy Romer via

Contemporary Australian artist CJ Hendry’s Monochrome exhibition sees a 2 000 square-metre industrial space in New York City transformed into seven colourful rooms.

Each room in this “home” is painted in a specific colour, namely yellow, pink, purple, green, blue, orange and red, corresponding to the art displayed on the walls, which are made from modular plastic blocks called Everblocks.

The art is a showcase of CJ’s colourful drawings of crumpled Pantone swatch cards, a first for the artist, who works predominantly in black and white. For her, the idea behind the exhibition was to design each room around the art hanging on the wall, and not the other way around.
