sunset on a frosty afternoon/ rothko
Back outside, and believe me it's freezing out there! I have been noticing how much it's the colors on top of colors and the colors between the colors that make the vibration. This one has small pieces of success... not completely though.
Read his words:
"I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on."
"The fact that people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I can communicate those basic human emotions. The people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when painting them. And if you say you are moved only by their color relationships then you miss the point."
What do you think?
