I thought i would add the most interesting find on my dissertation research of the day. The topic of my dissertation is based on the history of colour and how it effects modern art. i have been researching the study of naturalism, colour and form.
Hans Hofmann is the artist of the day and what particularly hit home for me was a quote from his essay titled “painting and culture”. He wrote:
“Three absolutely different factors are involved, first, nature which works upon us by its laws; second, the artist who creates a spiritual contact with nature and his materials; third, the medium of expression through which the artist translates his inner world”.
I can defiantly see how Hofmann’s laws transmit to my own practice. I especially have an allegiance with the third factor, Through which i use abstract expression to translate my experiences onto the canvas.
