Simplicity = Freedom

“For me to gain freedom is to gain simplicity…” Joan Miró

Joan Miró - El ala de la alondra aureolada de azul de oro llega al corazón de una amapola adormilada sobre el prado engalanado de diamantes, 1967 - Oil on canvas

Yes, it took me only a moment to draw this line with my brush. But it took me months, perhaps even years of reflection to form the idea of it.

This simple line proves to me that I have conquered freedom. And to me, conquering freedom means conquering simplicity. Ath the very limit, then, one line, one color can make a painting.





Do you have something to say?
