The Painter of Black by Pierre Soulages

via Minimalissimo
Abstract minimalist artist Pierre Soulages (1919)

“I like the authority of black. It’s an uncompromising colour. A violent colour, but one that encourages internalisation. Both a colour and a non-colour. When light is reflected on black, it transforms and transmutes it. It opens up a mental field all of its own.”
