Our first guest art reviewers are the cinematic composer and lyricist team, Heinali and Matt Finney, whose EP, Lemonade, we gave a shining review a while back. They're kicking off their list of contributions with a piece on a revolutionary painter of his time, Mark Rothko: Image and video hosting by TinyPic It's almost impossible to talk about Mark Rothko's work. you either see the beauty, tragedy, and despair or you don't. It doesn't need to be talked about. It needs to be absorbed. You need to stand in front of one of his pieces and connect. You're gonna feel what he felt when he painted it. It's all there. The baring of one man's soul. If you think it's all abstraction then you missed the point. Rothko's fields of color inspired the title for our song "Pure Color" and hopefully we did him justice. We pinned ourselves into a corner when we said his work is beyond words but we meant it. There's no middle ground to settle on. They're intimate, intense, and he inspires us to continue doing what we do. Image and video hosting by TinyPic "Silence is so accurate."- Mark Rothko The man said it best and we'll shut up now. Hopefully this is a good starting point for us as directors for the next couple of days. If you didn't know of him already then treat yourself to some of his works. Take a look around here and visit a museum. Going outside for a bit won't kill you. We promise. Hope you enjoy it. We'll see you tomorrow! – Heinali and Matt Image and video hosting by TinyPic Works by Rothko can be viewed on display in the Tate Modern's Collection
