Anni Albers

I chose the work  of Anni Albers because the first piece I was of hers, Knot 2 (1947), caught my attention. The primary colors used in such a chaotic yet precise way allows the eye to follow each string on its journey through the knot. If other colors were used or even one more string was in place, making sense of the knot would become a task too difficult to see through. I feel as though her colors in her other work such as Study For A have three colors for a purpose as well. To clearly understand and be able to make sense of the chaotic or busy subject matter, color is not an asset, it's a distraction.
