“The more I work, the more I see things differently, that is, everything gains in grandeur every day, becomes more and more unknown, more and more beautiful. The closer I come, the grander it is, the more remote it is.”
– Alberto Giacometti, Giacometti: A Biography
* I think I’m at the beginning of a new obsession, this time with color. Color! Suddenly its influence seems fascinating to me, just the way I abruptly awakened to the power of the sense of smell. The first sign of an obsession, in me, is a desire to read obsessively about a topic. I now have a long library list, and I spent a lot of time on The Morning After the Deluge—”a blog about color, light, and shade in art and science”—and on the Pantone blog. Fun color fact: Pantone has declared Tangerine Tango the 2012 color of the year.
