Dialogue in Red, Yellow

Spontaneous paper collage that arranged itself, speaking in color and shape when there are no words, a letter to Vincent Van Gogh.

The following is an excerpt of Van Gogh's letter to his youngest sister, Willimien, written from the south of France.

"Here I need no Japanese woodblock prints, because I am here in Japan. This is why I only have to open my eyes and paint the impressions that I receive.

Ici, je n'ai pas besoin d'estampes japonaises, car je me dis toujours que suis ici au Japon. Et c'est pourquoi je n'ai qu'a garder les yeux grand ouverts et peindre les impessions que je recois."

Today, he would be given medication but there would be no paintings of blazing color and fire.
