Reflection At The Day’s End

Brice Marden noted how with an abstract image compared to a representational image the viewer has to do the work, go within and use the painting as a sounding board for the spirit.

Here the flesh pink, pale and yellowish, is sidelined by the cerise, rosy and red.  Notice also the resin-blue, mottled white and sage green.

“Perhaps a painting becomes a slow painting when it engages more than just our eye.” Simon Callery
