Pierre Soulages

The painter of black

One of my favorite artists, Pierre Soulages – “My instrument is not black but the light reflected from the black.”

” Born in¬†Rodez,¬†Aveyron, in 1919, Soulages is also known as “the painter of black,” owing to his interest in the colour “both as a colour and a non-colour. When light is reflected on black, it transforms and transmutes it. It opens a mental field all its own.” He sees light as a work material; striations of the black surface of his paintings enable him to reflect light, allowing the black to come out of darkness and into brightness, thus becoming a luminous colour. ”
