Rothko in MOCA Los Angeles

How to get aware

July may be just the best time for a holiday in LA, california! What? Yes because of summer heat museums are the best places to be. So we went to MOCA (Museum of contemporary art) last night to enjoy art and as surprise the third room was dedicated only to Mark Rothko only. What a beautiful surprise not only because of many closed rooms in this small museum in downtown LA.

For me as a color awareness painter it was sad to see how fast und unaware most of the visitors went by checking their smartphones, taking pictures and running to the next room. More than 50 years ago Rothko´s wish to stand right before his pictures just to get part of it´s colors seems no longer to exist. But at least there where to people diving deep into this beautiful color field paintings…and maybe that´s by far enough – time will tell

Meaning of Color-Field-Painting

Color Field Painting…

…became some sort of label but dispite that there are still artists who refer in their contemporary art work to this. So I´m one of these and will work on because there´s no alternative when searching for deeper meaning of colour. It seems all stories have been told in painting but when you´re not in telling stories while painting but more in “meditating” over what comes through you and what will last it´s obvious that there can´t be anything else but Color Field Painting. Color is the subject of my work with large painted expanses surrounding the viewer.  Is this style meditative and does it come from the subconsciousness? Not really because while painting a much deeper awareness takes part of my mind and soul and becomes an essential part of the process and at least part of the created art… So I will call it from now on “Color Awareness PaintingRead more
