Dan Flavin ~ Untitled (To Donna) II 1971

Dan Flavin was my choice for this week at Fifty Two Pieces. I've always been intrigued by what Flavin could do with a palette restricted to the colors from florescent bulbs. In this case, pink, blue and yellow tell the story. While you're looking at this sculpture, remember what Kenneth Noland the famous color field painter said about his paintings.
I think of painting without subject matter as music without words.

Enjoy the music, I'm off to an holiday event!!!
Flavin's Untitled (To Donna) II 1971 can be seen on the second floor of the CMCA at the Portland Art Museum.
