This week, I’ve found myself going back and visiting with the work of Jasper Johns. Specifically, “The Four Seasons” series.
I think that he began exploring the idea in the mid-80s, but Johns has revisited the Four Season idea a number of times through drawing, painting, and in print. One of my favorite things is the way the human shadow falls over the different object, implying that there is a human being standing there, but but not ever showing them directly. I really love John’s work. The textures, the symbols, and the flat fields of color.
