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

color fields in springtime

Again spring light is coming back and brings us joy while strolling over fresh green gras and wonderful woods… It´s some sort of magic while breathing in freshness of ground and feel a special sort satisfaction as morning light brightens up the sleeping room. This forces me into the studio and give back what mother nature gives.

March / April  of course is the time when all the easter celebrations start and we´re remembered what more than 2.000 years ago took place in a desert region in the far east. Later the Oval became the symbol of renewing our soul and mind…

We enjoyed almost two weeks on our exhibition while having a wonderful time in Munich. So many visitors, great talks about color and it´s meaning, about “color awareness painting” (my new word creation) and how easy it is to meditate in front of this paintings. Some people came almost every day!
