mark rothko...love this guys concept, he believed that when we were in the womb we were aware of colour and that made us feel safe. so he decided to figure out what colours they would be then paint them on a large scale, so that when you stood in front of one of his pieces you would feel safe.
"Mark Rothko evokes an experience, however, rather than illustrating one, relying on color, form and scale to move viewers to contemplate the elusive and the spiritual.”
"White Center" (1950) by Mark Rothko. From the National Gallery of Art.
White Center (Yellow, Pink and Lavender on Rose) is part of Mark Rothko’s signature multiform style: several blocks of layered, complementary colors on a large canvas.
Ah, pink and orange - the happiest of all colour combinations Rothko
