Josef Albers

I went to the Barber Institute today as a treat from doing my marking!  They have a small exhibition on called ‘Chance, Order, Change’ with 11 pieces from 1939-89. http://barber.org.uk/chance-order-change-3/

Amongst the 11 there were three that stood out for me, all by Josef Albers. The name was not familiar as such, but the works resonated with me more than the others that made up this exhibition.

Two were related to Alber’s seminal work: Homage to the Square

Homage to Red Square thT36NDOAUThese two were quite hypnotic and I would recommend taking some music to listen to as the humidifier is quite noisy and, with the right tune playing, the rhythm of these squares works with the rhythm of the music.
