Exalting Our Spirits
“I choose that my art be engaged in that which exalts the spirit of man.”
Clyfford Still is one of my favorite artists and his work, inspiration. There is a quote that describes Still on a mural in Denver. It states: "The canvas was his ally. The paint and trowel were his weapons. And the art world was his enemy." Pretty powerful words for describing an artist but his work truly is powerful. The boldness with which he painted has always struck me. His mark making alone shows his confidence and his authority. If ever you are in Denver, visiting the Clyfford Still Museum is a must.
