Mark Rothkos’ work has inspired me a lot and reviewing his work in this late stage has allowed me to make some critical decisions on how my final piece will inevitably look and feel.
With Rothkos’ work the canvases are large filling the whole wall and the whole of the viewers visual field at times. These great expanses of colour have been cut and pulled forward and backward buy the clever use of colours in contrast. Colours seem to float in front of others while others are pushed backward and never ending. The simplicity of the technique used creates such a dramatic effect.With just two colours a void can be created!
