I was introduced to the abstract minimalist works of Barnett Newman by a friend Lia Melia. In creating a new site for Lia (stay tuned), I asked her how much information she would like to present for each piece and her response intrigued me to investigate further.
I want the painting to be seen first; the words are superfluous. I sat and cried looking at the Crucifixion series of Barnett Newman; it didn’t need words.
