Appreciate: Pierre Soulages

French artist Pierre Soulages is a jack of all trades. He is a sculptor, engraver, but is mostly known for his abstract paintings. Most of his works are a study on the color black. He creates striations in the black surface in his paintings to so that when light is reflected on it, the black color is more luminous and vibrant. The work pictured above is called, “Black, Grey, and Brown” is an example of this technique. Even though it is just a photograph of of the painting, you can still see the illuminations from the brushstrokes. With certain painters like Jackson Pollack, each flick of the wrist or brushstroke has some meaning behind it, but I feel like the purpose behind his work is to show color in a different light (pun intended). More of his work can be found here.
