rothko/sugimoto: dark paintings and seascapes
oct 04, 2012 – nov 17, 2012


dark paintings and seascapes pairs eight acrylic paintings by rothko and eight gelatin silver prints by sugimoto, revealing two different artistic approaches that arrive at similar conclusions. rothko's use of medium as pure abstraction communes with the work of hiroshi sugimoto who, decades later, used the medium itself to reconsider photography's relationship to his viewers’ perception of the world.
