Here are some photos from a recent trip to LACMA . . .

From there, we visited a modern art exhibit — The Serial Impulse at Gemini G.E.L — a celebration of the renowned Los Angeles print workshop Gemini G.E.L founded 50 years ago in 1966.

For example, here are some black rectangles by Richard Serra:

Josef Albers also painted a bunch of rectangles (squares, actually) but took things a step further by using different colors:

Ellsworth Kelly really pushed the envelope by using not only different colors but different four-sided shapes (e.g., trapezoids and parallelograms).

I had a couple of thoughts on the Gemini G.E.L. exhibit juxtaposed with Picasso and Rivera:

  1. Some people need to get serious.
  2. Some people should be ashamed of themselves.
