do you see in full color?

via larassakabel: I am so excited to be able to include Guy Loraine’s deceptively simple gouache paintings in the upcoming show The Space Between: Truth, Fiction and the Artistic Imagination at Moberg Gallery opening Friday September 28, 2018. Driven by the pursuit of perfection, his work highlights the gap between human endeavors and real life outcomes. In this body of work, he attempts to recreate the glow of the moon at different times of the day and night. The problem? He is color blind. Each attempt is a blind attempt, and though I have full color spectrum vision (at least I think I do), I can’t help but wish I could see what he sees in these paintings. His work can be viewed (in full color) at You should definitely check him out.
