Soulages and the unsuspected possibilities

Upon seeing the Pierre Soulages exhibition in Paris, I am struck by the continuous reverberations that I am still feeling from what was essentially a painterly presentation of black substances (not only paint).
« Le noir a des possibilités insoupçonnées et, attentif à ce que j’ignore, je vais à leur rencontre, » Soulages says. (« Black has unsuspected possibilities and, conscious of what I do not know, I go to meet them. »)
So it does. And so does white, yellow, blue, every color. And so does every moment. Go meet them and see.

    the space in which we are , the air we breath, the light in which everything is born from second to second ???
