Josef Albers in VES, 2011

Doing Josef Albers color studies in one of my painting classes was one of the happiest times of my life, and one of the saddest to remember.
Some of the assignments: make one color look like two different colors by placing it on different backgrounds. Make two different colors look like the same color. Make two different colors seem transparent where they overlap. For all these tasks, we had thousands of different sheets of colored paper to choose from.

  1. So, you put your toe in the water. Did you just stop or dive in?
    Did you know that Albers was also a photographer?
