Mark Rothko + Hiroshi Sugimoto

February 13th, 2015

Episode 72 of 330 episodes

In this video I want to take a look at interpretations of abstracts. After we did the last show, I got to thinking about it some and realized that interpretation is not necessarily limited to actual objects, people or locations. What if we look at how abstracts such as shape and line are interpreted by visual artists. I was reminded of the exhibition at Pace Gallery in London a few years ago that paired Hiroshi Sugimoto up with the late "dark paintings" that Mark Rothko produced in 1969. The answer is here. I still really love this idea - we'll be back to explore this theme in coming episodes.
