Black & White

There is a misconception about works of art composed in so called "black and white".  It seems to some that this lack of color is somehow less desirable.  Yet artists throughout history have used single colors to focus on composition or on gradations from light to dark.  Without the distraction of color, these creative building blocks become more prevalent.  In this section, we challenge the viewer to focus on "monochromatic" (single-colored) compositions.  Chances are that by the time you have looked at a few works, your mind will hone in on details you don't usually notice, and that you may even start to "see" colors that aren't actually there.
