Mark Rothko inspired art

We took the ideas of Mark Rothko (who was an Abstract Expressionist) and use them to create our own pictures. He wanted to paint human emotion - we mostly just painted and put some thought to negative and positive in our images.  

Rothko thought that the greatest paintings were the ones that captured a sense of stillness, and that is what he tried to do.  He painted rectangles with fuzzy edges. It’s a bit like looking through binoculars before they have been focused.  https://www.tate.org.uk/kids/explore/who-is/who-mark-rothko for more

Rothko was born in Latvia in 1903, but when he was ten his family moved to America. He studied painting at Yale University and then became one of ‘The Ten’, a group of ambitious young artists who wanted to promote abstract art in America.
