An Aspect of Divine Energy

December 11th, 2010

A ca. 1970s painting by Sam Francis reproduced in his collection of writings, Saturated Blue (n.p.).

Writes Francis:

Color may extend forever
expand forever
drift forever
stand still forever
as time may stand
still extend expand
and drift forever
and is indefinite relationship

forever is a limit
for space and time
color represents an aspect of divine energy
and in human terms
is measured in relation to desire

    Hi Robert—


    The painting appears in Francis’s collection of writings linked to in the post, however the only description given is the general introduction: “The illustrations selected for this book are part of a large group of self-portraits and mandalas made by Sam Francis primarily during the 1970s.”

    i enjoy your work of revealing colour in different dimenssions.colour that make me to think of the beggining of itself from genesis 1:1 in the bible.the colour that started with the light and dark.the two give us strong enrgy and will power reveal more exiting and forever enduring.
