July 13, 2015 Found Albers. I’ve been reading Donald Judd’s short essay on Specific Objects. His work and theories are tied with Josef Albers and Dan Flaven. Two artists I like very much. On my way to work the other day I took my camera and stopped riding for a few minutes to take photographs. In a random pedestrian laneway somebody was throwing out a piece of masonite and a piece of painted plywood and had casually leaned both against a fence. The result was like one of Albers Homage to the Square works.
I have a small paperback by Albers called the Interaction of Colour that I’ve had for years. You can still buy it new on Amazon. This really doesn’t have much colour in common with any of those specific homage pieces, but the shape and layout is definitely similar.
