Viewing single post of blog My art journey

forgot to add another little gem from yesterday’s reading, I find Hofmann very inspiring for my practice and for my dissertation.

“Colour has in itself a sovereign function on the basis of its light no sub-intrinsic qualities. Colour itself is light. In nature, light creates the colour, in the picture, colour creates light. Every colour shade emanates a very characteristic light.
The luminous quality of a work depends not only upon the light-emanating quality of every colour but upon the relation of these qualities. Relation is the product of a hypersensitive creative mind.”
