Mark Rothko

Ever heard of a soft red? Just look towards the works of Mark Rothko. Within a room at The  Tate, Mark Rothko fills up a room with a soft, ambient glow of red painted canvases. He breaks the rules of the painting by using a colour associated with anger, raw passion and blood, to create a soft glow and a relaxing atmosphere. I enjoy his work primarily because of the traditional rule breaking to create new works.
