green stripe

July 30, 2020

I came across this painting today by Russian artist, Olga Rozanova and I was drawn to its elegant simplicity. It amazes me that someone can create something so compelling out of a line and two colours. This painting made me think of a plaque on a tree near my children’s school that reads, “where the grey light meets the green air.” Where the grey light meets the green air; coming up for air after a period of challenge. There’s something in this fresh, green line that echoes the hopefulness of those words.
