    PoCKets of SiLencE







    When I was a younger man, art was a lonely thing. No galleries, no collectors, no critics, no money. Yet, it was a golden age, for we all had nothing to lose
    and
    a
    vision
    to gain.


    Today it is not quite the same. It is a time of tons of verbiage, activity, consumption. Which condition is better for the world at large I shall not venture to discuss.


    But I do know, that many of those who are driven to this life are desperately searching for
    those pockets
    of
    silence
    where we can root
    and
    grow.



    We must all hope we find them.

    Mark Rothko, BBC documentary by Simon Schama on The Power of Art



    in 1959 Rothko finally refused the prestigious Seagram beverage company $35,000 commission, for 9 murals (Rothko created 30) to be placed in their new Park Avenue building, decorating the walls of the luxurious Four Season restaurant, arguing that the people that eat in such a place will never see his paintings. In 1969 Rothko donated nine of these paintings to the Tate Modern in London. They arrived February 1970 at the same day Rothko's body was found in his studio.
    Though never visited this room, Rothko have achieved his will to create A space dedicated for his paintings, where there is nothing else .... and where, these paintings interrelated presence would create a unique room for a unique experience.
    Till these days this is one of the Tate's most visited rooms.
