Blue

Posted in Texts by chrisfremantle on September 10, 2011

Rebecca Solnit writes about blue the way that Donald Urquhart paints blue.

Rebecca Solnit has been doing a residency at Roni Horn’s Library of Water at Stykkishólmur, Iceland.  One of the published pieces, The Blue of Distance, is all about mountains, Renaissance painting, distance.

Donald Urquhart talks about the blue of a perfectly clear day.  He makes it into art: paintings, sculptures, places.
