Post Canvas and Paint: Variations | When Fainting with Mark Rothko
A searing moment. Trying to define what has occurred. You saw the painting and felt something awaken. Now it fades as you faint into the light. And only a dream awaits.
“The most important tool for the artist fashions through constant practice is faith in his ability to produce miracles when they are needed. Pictures must be miraculous: the instant one is completed, the intimacy between the creation and the creator is ended. He is an outsider. The picture must be for him, as for anyone experiencing it later, a revelation, an unexpected and unprecedented resolution of an eternally familiar need.” ~ Mark Rothko
