The Power of Art - Mark Rothko


Never been much of a fan of they type of art that Rothko made but for some reason I enjoy his work.  Sure it's simple and makes people angry but perhaps that was the point? What I do like about his work are his colour choices and how they do invoke emotions in the viewer.  Whether it's anger at the artist "getting away" with painting a square, or whether it's the calming blues or warm oranges that may help you reminisce. This hour long show really displays how art can be quite powerful.  It can inspire in several different ways and that's why it's so important.
