For his Stair-gazing project, New York artist Paul Corio created a “hue circle” painting specifically for the space. In this ongoing series, Corio arranges 12-hue color circles formatted as pinwheels within grids of squares or other geometric shapes. He incorporates the element of chance by allowing horse racing results to determine the sequencing of the color circles. Appropriately, he titles these works with the names of racehorses that catch his eye on racing forms.
