I see the light!

I'll admit that I have never spent the time to get Rothko. Today I spent the time, and I get it. No 3./No.13 at MoMa did it for me. As with all new loves, I can't get enough.

My closeups.

I've heard people talk about colors floating, and light, and canvases expanding. It's all true. Rothko was so concerned with how his work was displayed. He preferred his work to be grouped together, which is how I've seen it before. But here, it's displayed in a room with other artists. I was drawn to it and I think the diversity helped.

Go see it! MoMa is free on Friday evenings thanks to another love of mine, Target.
