I was fortunate to spend some time at the Modern Art Museum of Ft. Worth. As I entered, there was an amazing piece of art that engulfed the wall to my right.
Large. Striking. Bold.
A picture doesn’t do justice to the sheer size of this piece. Thinking about how he applied the canvas on a work this size fascinates me (yes, I love the process).
I began to learn about his work and found comfort in his color choices of blue, orange and black.
His Beside the Sea series really hits home for me. Simple. Bold. Intentional.
The color. The signature.
It just works.
I really love his Open Series. It seems to be a study of simplicity and design. It amazes me that simple lines with right color can invoke deep emotions.
I was messing around one night, especially wanting to focus on colors.
Thank you Robert Motherwell and thank you Modern Art Museum of Ft. Worth for featuring his work.
