New thoughts on Brice Marden.

I was watching this video on Brice Marden again today, and hearing him speak about his painting and the ways in which he was applying the glazes, all the webs of color made me think of DNA and it's ever stringy substances. I was reminded of what Julian Schnabel said about Brice that his gray paintings were a panel of meaning on which to begin painting again. I look at his work today as if he has moved into painting the DNA of art...of painting itself.

I'm sure my comments might have some repercussions, but alas if it weren't for people speaking their minds, civilization would never move forward.
