Rouge ou noir, impair et passe



Red is a warm colour, lively and agitated; it is forceful, a movement in itself... Mixed with yellow, it gains in warmth and becomes orange, which imparts an irradiating movement on its surroundings.
W. Kandinsky Concerning the Spiritual in Art Dover Publications, Inc. New York, 1977

Le rouge est une couleur chaude très vivante, vive et agitée, il possède une force immense, il est un mouvement en soi ... Mélangé au jaune, il gagne en chaleur et donne l’orangé qui possède un mouvement d’irradiation sur l’entourage.
V. Kandinsky Du spirituel dans l'art, éd. Denoël, 1989, p.162



Prayer for Springtime


Dear God,

We celebrate spring’s returning and the rejuvenation of the natural world.
Let us be moved by this vast and gentle insistence that goodness shall return,
that warmth and life shall succeed.
Help us to understand our place in this miracle.
Let us see that as a bird now builds its nest, bravely,
with bits and piece, so we must build human faith.
It is our simple duty;
it is the highest art;
it is our natural and vital role within the miracle of spring;
the creation of faith.
