blood red against navy blue
until night seeps through

My response to Carpe Diem #1240 Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue (Barnett Newman)

We are continuing to explore modern art and today Chèvrefeuille is challenging us with the abstract art of Barnett Newman. He tells us that ‘Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue’ is a series of four large-scale paintings, painted by Barnett Newman between 1966 and 1970, two of which have been the subject of attacks by vandals. The series’ name was a reference to Edward Albee’s play, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
