Looking For Violet, Green And Red
Mark Rothko

Against my better judgement and everything I hold dear about art, and certainly in violation of my political philosophy and my desire for the future of our society, I sort of like this piece. It's not great art, and I would certainly take seriously the notion that it isn't art at all, but rather, interesting graphic design. But it is more pleasing than any other piece I have seen by him.

I mean, meh, it's no Rothko, but still...

And a comment from a Moron (ette?) who prefers to remain anonymous...

What is it supposed to be? Looks like a window looking out at a stream with rocks. Painted by my 5-year-old.

The local art gallery once had an exhibit of landscapes. They included a Rothko made of orange and yellow squares. The explanation was that instead of depicting nature in the traditional sense, Rothko invoked it through bright, hazy, contrasting color. It was an interesting interpretation.

76 I love the sense of depth and comparative perspective.

The eight sides of the two polygons is representative of something, which we don't know but which the artist freely allows the observer to subjectively interpret.

The heavy use of red conveys to me the sense that there was sale on that color at the art store the day that the artist decided to paint this.

100 The popularity of modern "art" is puzzling to me. I get the concept of corporate art where some non-offensive design is pasted to a wall for a splash of color to visually fill a space. I've even had some of that as décor.

But to elevate it to the notion of fine art and pay handsomely or dearly for it at auction? I don't get it.

Seems like a deliberate degradation of our society to foist shit off as valuable, but it seems to have worked.

113 And there is a feeling of reflection, as if the subject is being reflected by a pool of water.

The nameplate is blank, as though waiting for something, like it is incomplete, or the work was unfinished.

So we supply our own labels to complete the work, and by doing so, project ourselves into the piece, and make it our own, so to speak.

Clearly it is an open vessel, waiting for us to merge with it and create our own reality.

133 Finally got to see "Twin Peaks" last night.

i liked it.

It has a real "Lost Highway" vibe about it as well as "unimaginable cosmic evil" thing going on.

The "LH" vibe is a good thing. It's one of Lynch's best movies ranking up there with "Blue Velvet" and "Elephant Man".

I think Ace is wrong about them going full Black Lodge from the start.

since I'm one of the 0.000000000000000001% of the TV viewing audience who watched "TP" all the way through the first time-

I can tell you that it was a relief to finally get a glimpse of where they were going.

And no more fucking Log Lady(though her short part last night was effective).

A big part of the problem with the original TP was that I believe Lynch left in the second season(?) and Frost took over the writing.

That kind of deadpan surrealism Lynch does is tough to write, and Frost's version of it blew donkey doodles.

Lynch came back for the Black Lodge parts of the original, so complete continuity makes sense.

I do hope though that they wrap it all up this season.

154 Rothko's pieces were all about how the colors made you feel. It's a much different experience in person when viewing the large piece right in front of you. The best example is the Rothko chapel in Houston where it's an entire environment. His work is not for everyone, since not everyone is as sensitive to color and how it affects mood. Rothko, of course, was highly sensitive to it as evidenced by his anxiety disorder and eventual suicide.

164 I think the "interesting graphic design" criticism of Rothko is valid. Esp. when you see his stuff on computer.

If you see it live, then you can see the artistry involved as his painting are all about light and depth. There's a bit of an endless sky or glancing through water aspect when you're staring at them.

I would agree with the proviso that an easily reproducible piece can still be significant. But it can't really be expensive if it isn't "rare" - in the sense that you can't get an indistinguishable piece from some guy down the street. Only idiots would pay to have a piece that anyone can make, themselves, even if it is beautiful. The artist should get the credit for identifying, and creating, a beautiful work but that shouldn't translate into any extra monetary value for the piece, which is essentially a commodity.

But, then, this is why art snobs will pay through the nose for "anything" that has the correct signature on it. They are really just overgrown autograph collectors, not art lovers in any way.

198 My personal working definition for art is something like "something which is designed with the intent to evoke or create emotions" with the caveat that the quality of art is highly correlated to it's accessibility to the average person. I don't think you should need a degree or have to spend much time and training to appreciate art, which means that if you're producing art to show off to critics, you're really not interested in creating good art.

I agree you don't need a degree to appreciate art. I think many think you do, however. "Art snobs" have intimidated people into thinking that art is more complex than it really is. I used to tell my students that all you need are eyes, a brain and a soul. It uses a language we all should have learned in kindergarten. Art history is different. That requires study, but art is made for humans, by humans, for the enjoyment and edification of humans.

284 Ever notice that Rothko and other artists like him always have to explain what the hell they are doing? That's because the crap they turn out is so meaningless (in my opinion that kills the 'art' aspect) and vapid it portrays nothing. That this inconsequential shit is highly regarded by critics and the imbeciles they influence is a significant sign of a cultural disease.

Yes, I think that is true. M. didn't seem to sign his works. Not with his name anyway, but his style is pretty unique.

With this work, and with Bernini, it's about how he disguises the material he's working with. Yes, it's marble, but you also see real flesh, the material of Mary's garment, the dead weight of Christ's body. There's also how M. hides the deliberate flaws, like the size of Mary herself. And the symbolism is amazing--a complex meaning in a very simple work.

348 Rothko's work emphasizes color composition, color harmonies, to the exclusion of nearly everything else. It isn't supposed to look like anything or be anything but its own sweet self, an object in space.

As an aside, Rothko deeply resented being categorized as an abstract artist since he felt the aims of the abstractionists were entirely different from his own. He wrote a book, 'The Artist's Reality: Philosophies of Art,' where he summarizes what he's after.

Extrapolating from some of his conclusions, art isn't what's hanging on the wall or hanging in the round. Art is what's taking place inside the person experiencing the object (or the dance performance or the piece of music or whatever). The emotions and associations and thoughts are what's being composed and directed. Rothko just happened to use color.

I happen to think many people don't like this kind of art because they go in with preconceived notions of what capital 'A' Art is supposed to be. If you're not open to it, that's fine, but I think you're missing out.

Years ago, the wife and I were shopping for granite countertops. So we walked through this warehouse with hundreds of samples. I stopped dead at one. It was a Jackson Pollack painting in stone. Unbelievably expensive - like $50,000, unbelievably beautiful. It had a name on the tag that identified it as 'Pollack' so I wasn't the first one to notice the resemblance.

It makes me wonder if Pollack borrowed his designs from nature.

But when I wake up in the middle of the night, in a panic because I can't think of anything to post for you maniacs, my mind doesn't rush to Rothko.

356 Art related life changing moment, circa 1994.

Shibumi visits the Museum of Modern art in DC with a friend. See's "art" that's basically a pile of stacked boxes and some burlap. Mutters something like "what a piece of cr@p. It looks like something in the back garage."

And Shibumi realizes: "Oh.My.God. I am my Dad."

Rothko was like a Nostradamus, that painting depicts the blood splattered by Hillary as she failed to break the glass ceiling.

Rothko Prophecy 4:

At midnight the vodka leader of the womyns
Will save herself, suddenly vanished:
Seven years later her ceiling blemished in blood,
To her return they will never say yes.

364 As an aside, Rothko deeply resented being categorized as an abstract artist since he felt the aims of the abstractionists were entirely different from his own. He wrote a book, 'The Artist's Reality: Philosophies of Art,' where he summarizes what he's after.

372 >> 89 I like Rothko. He certainly would have to prove to me that he could paint like Rembrandt before I would accord him the respect I give Rembrandt, but I'd rather hang a Rothko over my fireplace mantel than a Rembrandt. Suits my transitional style better.
Posted by: BarcelonaCarmen at May 24, 2017 10:36 AM (RHjCR)

---

He couldn't. If you go back to early Rothko, in the '30s, you see a painter heavily influenced by Picasso and Miro -- but clearly without the chops. And unlike Picasso, who was an amazing prodigy in his youth, there are no Rothkos from his youth that say "I could paint like this if I wanted to, but I don't." It was only when abandoned figurative art altogether that he found his niche.

Before I was married and still in my apartment I came home to a small velvet pouch, with a beautiful wooden carved rosary in it. It was just propped up against my door like it was placed on purpose.
It really is something to see. Now, I'm not even remotely Catholic but I can appreciate the workmanship. I still have it.

Last night Decades TV ran a Tonight Show with Roger Moore as a guest from 1982. Carson asked Roger to retell some jokes he told Carson on vacation.

A Scotsman tells his boss he's getting married on Thursday and needs the afternoon off and Friday too. His boss says, Jamie lad, it's your wedding take Saturday as well. Come Thursday, Jamie works the whole day and shows up on Friday. His boss says to him, I thought you were getting married what happened? Jamie says, I found out she's a virgin. Boss, What does that matter? Jamie, Well if she's not good enough for the other lads she's not good enough for me.

Seeing the Pieta at St. Peters is breath taking. I challenge any atheist to look at that and tell me the Pieta was not divinely inspired.
Posted by: IC at May 24, 2017 11:04 AM (a0IVu)

When the sculpture was first unveiled, people were so blown away that they were convinced that angels had made it. Michelangelo was so offended that that night he sneaked into where it was displayed and carved his name on Mary's sash, to let everyone know who really made it.

I don't know how true the story is, but it's one of my favorites.

Posted by: Kris at May 24, 2017 11:10 AM (nwqNw)







The version of the story I read was that a high church official publicly referred to Mike as "our gobbo from Milan". Mike took it badly, since he was actually from Florence (he was working in Milan when the church commissioned the Pieta). In his mind, it was like calling him an inbred redneck.

So he took his hammer and chisel, broke in to St Peter's and signed the Pieta "Michaelangelo Buonarroti, Florentine, made this".

And yes, it's his only signed work.

The real spiritual issue, as stated by Christian Mystics, is that performing ritual magic is worshiping false idols.

That said, the Mystics also say that everyone will be saved no-matter-how-long-it-takes (parable of the flock). So go ahead and enjoy the pageant.

Christian Mystics proclaim what Catholic Church would call Heresies. The ones that have significant believers say the same things sightly restated. To tell the difference between the real thing and a con-man check for if they take up a collection (pass the plate) at their lectures. Solicitations for money is the tell.

617 There's only a small dent in the side of our car (minivan). But the guy cracked his bumper in about 5 places.

He was very nice. But it shook my son up, so he asked me to drive home. We were all laughing about it all the way home. I called my husband on the way home and he laughed too.

The only nonlaughing part will be dealing with the insurance company, because that's never fun. But luckily we're all fine, although my son did say, "I'm traumatized. I think I now have mesothelioma." LOL.

I could be wrong, of course.

Which is fine.

I don't care for poetry. There, I said it. And I accept that as MY limitation, not the poets'.

So, this being said, my preference in abstract is less geometrical shapes. This is alright, but not my favorite of the genre. I think I know what I see, regardless of what the artist saw.

So yeah, it's alright.

687 heh. If I had to choose an age that really worked for me it would 34 or 35; I was in great shape and really happy with my life at that time.

Yeah, I probably wouldn't pick 29 because I was pregnant practically the whole time I was 29. Maybe 28. By 35 I was pregnant with my 4th.

But the catholic faith has weathered poor popes before and will do so again.

692 The first day I had my license, I was stopped by a highway patrolman. I was only 14, and he thought I was too young to be driving.

Great guy, by the way. Local. His name was Robert Woods. He was killed by a prison escapee while he was manning a road block. Wife, two young children. RIP Robert.

Wow. You can't see the apartment, there's no rent, no deposit, but there is a lease.

And these fools thought they were going to sell this house?


The article says they took it off the market recently, probably because of the responses to the ad.

Our culture is fundamentally changing and not in a "live and let live" kind of way.
The mechanisms for forcing everyone to publicly go with it or be exposed as a heretic are being put in place.
I know there are still a lot adherents to the faith but are they willing to lose their jobs or go to jail for their faith.
Some, I'm sure.
But not many.

Remember that they even named one of their movements "Re-create '68".

Vietnam was THE defining moment of Boomers' lives, and they spent the rest of their lives drilling it into their kids' heads (and if they became teachers, into YOUR kids' heads).

The left will FOREVER be protesting and re-protesting their little mental Vietnams.

Its more than the war and protesting.

The antiwar movement was the seedling for the notion that "we can make a difference, we can change the world".

It's the genesis of every Marxist, social justice warrioring, bleeding heart do gooder on stage today.

717 A WHOLE lot of modern art is really just BRANDING.

These faddish things are taken up by the "cognoscenti" because they're easily recognizable, so it's like buying a hideously expensive, but prominently logo-ed, Prada bag to show off to your fabulous friends.

E.g., Jeff Koons, Rauschenberg, Lichtenstein, Rothko, et al.
