“I never wanted color to be color. I never wanted texture to be texture, or images to become shapes. I wanted them all to fuse together into a living spirit.” These words come from the one of the great color field painters, Clyfford Still. Next week ushers the opportunity to take in this “living spirit” in all it’s splendor, as The Clyfford Still Museum opens in Denver, Colorado. This museum will showcase 94% of his life’s work, all of which has been sealed from public and academic eyes after his death in 1980. The Metropolitain Museum of Art in NY has impressive examples of his massive work on permanent display, which are brilliant, bold flashes of color and texture. It’s like walking into the most awesome thunderstorm nature never knew. I dream of a collection of dresses designed by the fabulous sisters Rodarte inspired by Still’s paintings. Doors open on November 18th, my dear talented ladies…
