#31DC2013 Day 27 - Inspired by an Artwork
The artwork I chose for today is Barnett Newman's Voice of Fire. Barnett Newman is my favourite colour field painter, and I saw Voice of Fire at the National Gallery of Canada a few years ago and it left a serious impression on me. It has become rather synonymous with red and blue together for me. You can't give the same feel through nails that you can with a canvas that is almost 18 feet tall but I liked thinking about Voice of Fire whenever I looked at my nails.
What do you think of colour field as a style of abstract painting?
