Playing with Color
I found this quote from Paul Klee in my email this week:
"Colour has taken hold of me; no longer do I have to chase after it. I know that it has hold of me forever."
I've been thinking quite a lot about color this week because of the drawing I'm working on.
Its title used to be Frame for the Map because I intended it to be a frame for my Map of the World.
Meanwhile, and now I'm getting a little circuitous, in my talk last Monday on Artists Talk on Art with Eileen Hoffman about Saint Barbara and Rapunzel I showed this image of what I thought was the façade of a Greek Orthodox Church of Saint Barbara in Chinatown.At least when I googled Saint Barbara's Church it came up. I didn't know exactly what this was but, because I think it's so beautiful I decided to act like it's Saint Barbara's until I learn different.
And I did. Learn different, that is. Deborah Ugoretz spoke up to say, "That's not a church, it's the Eldridge Street Synagogue." So I googled that and saw this image of their interior.
