Tung Nguyen: System Artist (Sol LeWitt)
At first glance, the painting looks like random messy color lines though the color mixture is aesthetically pleasing. This week topic has been about seeing things for what they are, instead of forcefully apply our own association. It's about trying to find the extra detail and the extra meaning. To me, the painting seems like the wind of life blowing. Each color is one aspect of a multicolor picture. We should not follow one aspect to see where it starts and where it ends. We should rather appreciate life for its innate beauty, for the "big picture". That intertwined mess makes life beautiful and worth living.
