!100! after Josef Albers
I am trying to convey the big emotions—ecstasy, doom. I am looking at neither the wall nor the red bowl awash with intention, crushed berries, euphoria, that plush stain. It is a meditation. Color shakes itself from the canvas, the canvas from its wooden frame. The bowl is like a puncto from the corner of the room. It is aggressing. It attends.
