Great viewing of some Abstract Expressionist paintings on at the Art Gallery of Ontario. My buddy Dan Ryan and I went out for a viewing and lunch today and enjoyed both the show and beers. I found myself drawn to the work of Klein. His strong black on white graphic images resonated with me. Afterward, flipping through a book on Klein, I was knocked out by his coloured works as well. I also enjoyed Rothko as always, especially when looking up at his work from close range. The colours resonated, and for me that’s always the bottom line. 80% of painting is mixing the paint.
