I really dig this It’s Not Always Just Black or White painting by Dora Ficher. I like the starkness of the black and white, almost bathroom tile, with a splash of red. I also agree with the sentiment.
Like all truisms, this is not a black OR white world. Rather, we live in between those concrete lines. My series explores this “in between.” Within the black and white, the layers that define us are embedded in the work. The colors of the spectrum converge and merge toward shades of grey, ironically the combination of black and white. We need to explore this complex convergence that defines and enhances the richness of the human experience.
