Where Does Art Reside ?

Art Quote of the Day

“Blue is a mysterious color, hue of illness and nobility, the rarest color in nature.  It is the color of ambiguous depth, of the heavens and of the abyss at once: blue is the color of the shadow side, the tint of the marvelous and the inexplicable,of desire, of knowledge, of the blue movie, of blue talk, of raw meat& rare steak, of melancholy and the unexpected,(once in a blue moon, out of the blue). It is the color of anode plates,royalty at Rome,smoke, distant hills, postmarks, georgian silver, thin milk, and hardened steel; of veins seen through skin and notices of dismissal in the American railroad business. Brimstone burns blue, and a blue candle flame is said to indicate the presence of ghosts. The blue-black sky of Vincent van Gogh’s CROWS FLYING OVER A CORNFIELD seems to express the painter’s doom. But, according to Grace Mirabella, editor of Mirabella, a blue cover used on a magazine always guarantees increased sales at the newstand. “It  is America’s favorite color,” she says.
