color field painting red-cross

Where the horizontal with the vertical coincides, creates a point, a point of silence, without direction, without tendency. The cross as a sign of the horizontal earth-force (the landscape) and vertical spirit power of man with his quest to follow the spiritual impulse and to free themselves from the horizontal earth-forces and thereby integrate them in conscious upward jump ….

Just as colors reflect soul qualities, grab as primal forms by an invisible bond between man and determined forces. And suppleness and balance is found in the “wheel cross” as in “greek cross”, an overemphasis on the verticals takes place only in the “latin cross symbol” which accompanied the incarnation as a cross of the “passion of christ”  but also as a symbol of resurrection.
