During Unit 6, I made a presentation on Mark Rothko’s life and creative works. You can read further below in my presentation handout (available for download or viewing through the widget below) and the accompanying visuals in a PowerPoint (also available for download or viewing below). Mark Rothko marks an interesting tie into my portfolio because he chose to eliminate any human form in his paintings in favor of a more common representation of human emotion. Our corporeality is a commonality between all humans (as we learned from Prof. Tamura in Unit 3), so taking away the corporeality is an interesting move by Rothko. Take his pieces as you will.
