LOUISIANA MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

Color in Art

Edited and with Introduction by Michael Juul Holm, Helle Crenzien. Preface by Stephanie Rachum. Text by Jacob Wamberg, John Gage, et al.

"'Art does not reproduce the visible; rather it makes visible,' said Paul Klee. This applies in a quite special way to language and the colors, because color cannot in fact be reproduced on a one-to-one basis by words in language. That colors--and shapes--cannot be rendered analogously in writing, only 'digitally,' has over time given writers a feeling of both powerlessness and omnipotence. On the one hand they cannot reproduce the colors, on the other they are then free to create their own worlds of color."<p>Lars Handesten, excerpted from "<a href="9788791607813.html">Color in Art</a>. Featured image also from "<a href="9788791607813.html">Color in Art</a>.  What is color? From Aristotle and Plato through Newton and Goethe to Wittgenstein, philosophers and scientists have worked to understand and categorize color, while artists have made their own efforts to demonstrate its enigmatic logics. This is a book about color, and a book about color and art. Across eight essays and more than 150 works of art drawn from the collections of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and Merzbacher Collection, this book aims to define color as a phenomenon that manifests across many different lines of thought and areas of life: the history of art, the history of ideas, psychology, psychiatry and cognitive science, architecture, marketing, literature and music. The essayists for the volume are John Gage, Erich H. Buxbaum, Jacob Wamberg, Klaus Stromer, Morten Kringelbach with Kristine Rømer Thomsen, Gertrud Olsson, Lars Handesten, Steen Chr. Steensen, Helle Crenzien and Stephanie Rachum.

FROM THE BOOK
"Visual art often plays on a dialectic between what could be called native familiarity and that sudden focus that arises in the viewer when the artist sharpens, tests, confronts or twists the color. What happens then is that colors proclaim their independence as sensory experience and as phenomenon--also in more abstract ways elevated above the ordinary experience that anything can bear a striking resemblance to all sorts of other things. Visual art has a powerful ability to create such pure sensory experiences, not only in art itself, but also through further resonances and enhanced perceptive powers in the world to which you return after spending time in the uniquely uncommitted and at the time hyper-intensified space of the works."

Helle Crenzien and Michael Juul Holm, excerpted from their introduction to "Color in Art.
