An Artful Moment: Mark Rothko

For the sake of an aesthetically fruitful collaboration between eye and mind:

"White Center"

Mark Rothko (1903-1970) was a Russian-born American painter who championed the idea that everyone, especially artists, should have total freedom of self-expression, in large measure because he felt that social and economic forces in the world were posing an increasing threat to all forms of liberty. Rothko’s creative style evolved, until he reached his signature use of rectangular forms on a field of color, though he consistently resisted being categorized as an abstract expressionist: “If you are only moved by color relationships, you are missing the point. I am interested in expressing the big emotions – tragedy, ecstasy, doom.”
