Josef Albers, “Homage to the Square: Glow,” (1966). From the Hirshhorn’s collection.
“We must teach each other… education is not first giving answers but giving questions.” – Josef Albers
Abstract art is void of narrative. The composition often speaks only through the viewers mind. A type of understanding through speculation, providing the sort of simple canvas that the imagination needs in order to thrive.
Josef Albers (1888-1976) was a master of the subjective canvas, an explorer of color and an ambassador for the abstract form.
