I was riding up the chairlift on Sunday morning with an architect friend of mine from Minnesota. He mentioned that he had been looking at my work, and that my color combinations reminded him of a book he had read in college, Josef Albers’ Color Interaction. I confessed that I steal frequently and unrepentantly from Albers! His work on color never fails to inspire me. If a painting is “stuck” and I think color might be the issue, I look to Albers’ book for what is, for me, almost divine guidance.
There are only a handful of books I believe belong on every artist’s shelf. This is one of those. You will never see color the same way again.
