"I have taught my students not to apply rules or mechanical ways of seeing." --Josef Albers, influential 20th-century artist and art educator, creator of the Homage to the Square series.
Hailed as one of the most visionary painters of modern time and a powerful influence on an entire generation of artists, Josef Albers revolutionized the art of seeing. An explorer of the interaction of color, he believed in both seeing and feeling the relationships between colors. Albers' theory is as applicable to interior design as it is to art: "In order to use color effectively, it is necessary to recognize that color deceives continually."
