Cobalt Blue: Writings from the papers of Sam Francis beautifully combines the artist’s writing with his works on paper in an elegantly designed book. This new collection includes writings from Francis’s journals that have never been published before and previous essays from catalogs long out-of-print.
Sam Francis kept journals and diaries during the entire span of his five- decades career as a leading Abstract Expressionist artist famed for his colorful lyricism and dynamic painting. His writings include not only his philosophy of art but also his rich dream life that was the underpinning for his painting. Francis approached art as mediation between divine inspiration and human existence and his writings took the form of aphorisms, poetry, dream memories and prose, each providing insight into his visual art.
