Tuesday Tumblr Collection

Clever Manka, · Categories: Tuesday Tumblr

No. 61 (Rust and Blue), Mark Rothko, 1953.

This week’s Tumblr collection is Tuesday, October 24: Rust & Blue.

clevermankaI’ve posted a weekly themed collection on my Tumblr nearly every week since October, 2011. Someday I’ll compile a list of them, with links to the dates. That day is not today.

    This has nothing to do with today's collection, but the concert was great and I am KNACKERED. Here we are outside the show, waiting to get in.

    The Itchiku Kubota page lets users zoom in on his Symphony of Light and other astonishing pieces, each of which is intricately hand-inked and then tie-dyed in an artform called tsujigahana. Online images don't convey the astonishing beauty of his pieces, which are as gorgeous from inches away as they are across a room.

    Of San, inspired by his time in a Soviet prison camp, he said, "There in Siberia I felt all hope had fled. And the sunsets were so beautiful ! The big red sun going down below the horizon. The glittering gold and silver sea. All that beauty I would dye before my Tsujigahana… That sun penetrated clouds and swirling dust. It made everything beautiful and warm."

    I have failed in parenting. My children HATE art museums. Especially Rothko. HOW?? How can you not stare at that for hours?

    I'm slowly working them back to it through pop art and wayne thibaud.

      Aren't most museums (that aren't created with children in mind) tough on kids? They just don't seem very friendly to them at a young age (so quiet! no touching!) and that feeling probably doesn't change easily, I'd think. Best wishes working them up to it!

    Not blue and rust, but relevant 'cause Rothko:

    I was in Oregon last week and I found this in a fancy letterpress store. Struggling to decide who to send it to because I know too many people who need it…
