CHROMATIC BLACK



































Ad Reinhardt
No black, just deep shades of red, green and blue

"Reinhardt was by far in a way the most subtle colourist of the abstract expressionist painters. His use of colour was so subtle in fact that it's on the very threshold of perception. To see these paintings we quite literally have to slow down the pace of everyday life. These paintings demand our patience and close looking." MoMA YouTube

"My art is about working in the wide world, wherever. It has the themes of materials, ideas, movement, time. The beauty of objects, thoughts, places and actions. I hope to make images and ideas that resonate in the imagination, that mark the earth and the mind. My work is about my senses, my scale, my instinct. I use the world as I find it, passing through by design and chance."
