LVL 05: Art of Barnett Newman

I’ve never been so blown away by paintings as I have been in seeing Barnett Newman’s paintings.  One could easily dismiss these as too simple, too non-artistic, too ‘modern’, or any other lazy tag of insult.  However standing in front of one is to absorb energy and feel a sensation of freedom.  Barnett Newman’s artwork makes me feel like I want to let go instead of hang on.  That feeling in itself is completely unique and remarkably absorbing.
