The Pantone Series (sometimes called Pantone People) began in 2016 with several anonymous works submitted to Rochester Contemporary Art Center‘s annual 6×6 exhibition. The work was prompted by Pantone’s announcement of the Color of the Year – which, for the first time, featured two colors. Rose Quartz was used for the inspiration to paint Instagram-famous The Fat Jewish (Josh Ostrovsky) with a bottle of his infamous White Girl Rosé. The series combines a celebrity (mostly global, sometimes local) with a Pantone color chip that relates to that person. The majority of works are painted in acrylic on Masonite panel and measure 6″W x 6″H. In late 2017, production of a 10 x 10″ size commenced with a commission request for a Pantone family portrait; and 24 x 24” canvases began in 2019.
