Robert Motherwell - The Open series

"The Open series preoccupied Motherwell from 1967 until the last years of his life. 

Open was a personal response to the colorfield paintings made by younger abstract painters in the ’60s.

Motherwell’s abstracts are his equivalents to the views through open windows favored by European painters such as Matisse as metaphors for the relationship between the interior world of the emotions and the external world of the senses.”


CASE STUDY HOMES — PETER BIALOBRZESKI

communedesign:

Case Study Homes by Peter Bialobrzeski is intended to serve as more than a visual study of huts erected in a place called Baseco, a squatter camp near Manila, home to about 70,000 people. The ramshackle contraptions are also “good solutions”, affordable to live in, but they lack the cool and glamour of Case Study House no. 22. Biablobrzeski writes that “these images remind me of something completely unhip: the long-forgotten word ‘humility.’”
