Artwork Title: Concord - Artist Name: Barnett Newman


Barnett Newman, 1949

Concord is not a geometric picture. The colored field is not meant as a void on which a simple boundary is delineated. Pictures like this one ask the viewer to consider whether space alone, without narrative detail, can convey meaning. In Newman’s words, “Instead of using outlines, instead of making shapes or setting off spaces my drawing declares the space.” The zip is “a field that brings life to the other fields, just as the other fields bring life to this so-called line.”“ (Source) http://i
