Robert Motherwell Open

Sometimes looking at
paintings is much better than
reading about them.

The essays included in Robert Motherwell Open are way over my head. Good thing there are a lot of pictures of the artist's paintings from his Open series.

Let's just say their geometric simplicity is offset by brushwork and color complexity and the combination reveals a sense of infinite possibility.

Robert Motherwell, In Plato's Cave, 1972. (I chose this particular example of Motherwell's Opens for my friend Chris because of its blackness.)

No one in their right mind would compensate me for this "review."
