Think Pink

Flicking through various art books to find the perfect pink and noticing how any times Matisse used pink next to its complimentary lime green for maximum impact. Hopeful shell pinks wash across Agnes Martin’s Happy Holiday canvas while Ben Nicholson’s work from 1953, Contrapuntal allows us to really enjoy the pink slice interacting with a host of other hues. And of course a choice of pinks appear in Hirst’s Controlled Substances so fully armed and inspired I am off to mix my own perfect pink.
