How to ‘feel’ abstract art and look at Rothko’s squares as you would at the ocean and the horizon’s line. Brilliant vision.
Lita Sorensen:”The experience of (Rothko’s) paintings, I feel,(is)visceral. The colors suggest feeling; the space a grand scope…leading almost to infinity…it doesn’t have to be about more than this…when experiencing these paintings is very close to sitting on the beach and looking at the ocean, or sitting in a cathedral.”
