Last great exhibition you saw: “Rothko is also so fearless with color. Early on in my work I was hesitant to bring in colors; they seemed so powerful, and I usually deferred to the natural color of the wood. Often my teachers would mention form versus color, and form was my focus initially. But in recent years, especially with Pink/Frequency, I felt like color was saying, ‘Hey, we should really work together.’ Now I’m more open to it. But I want to be even more fearless like Rothko, and let colors make the choices.”
