BLURB

Endless debates on whether color or drawing is more important within painting were definitive in the history of art ever since the Renaissance. According to the Venetian traditions, the more sensual “colore” was the true nature of mosaics, frescoes and oil painting. On the contrary, Florentine Renaissance artists believed in the superiority of “disegno” or drawing as being rational and scientific in its approach to perspective and design of composition. This opposition was that of nature and intellect, observation and invention. Yet, the two elements couldn’t exist without each other… thought the Renaissance master, until somebody came and got rid of drawing, this skeleton of painting to see the flesh of paint live free like the rainbow of cosmic gas in the vacuum of space. The scientific approach was finally passed on to the observers of nature when the impressionists started questioning what the eyes can see. They saw the whole spectrum of colors of Goethe’s color wheel as building blocks of vision and painting. It’s only one step away from abstraction. But the question here is, having let design go, when do we say good bye to the illusion of color? [Andras Gal]
