Roberto Burle Marx (1909–1994) was one of the most influential landscape architects of the twentieth century, yet he is not a familiar figure outside of his native Brazil. He is best known for his iconic seaside pavements on Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana Beach, and for his abstract, geometric garden designs. But his work encompasses an enormous range of artistic forms and styles: Burle Marx was a painter and sculptor; a designer of textiles, jewelry, theater sets, and costumes; a ceramicist and stained-glass artist. He was an avid art collector, a talented baritone, a consummate cook, and a visionary self-taught botanist and ecologist. For him, all these endeavors were equally important, facets of one another.
"There is no value in killing the likes of you… My foolish brother…
If you want to kill me… curse me! Hate me! And live a long and
unsightly life… Run away… run away… and cling to your pitiful life.
And then some day, when you have the same eyes as I do,
come before me."

“Moje obrazy mają dwie cechy charakterystyczne: albo się rozszerzają, a wtedy otwierają się we wszystkich kierunkach, albo się kurczą, a wtedy gwałtownie się zamykają we wszystkich kierunkach. Pomiędzy tymi dwoma biegunami leży wszystko, co mam do powiedzenia.”- Mark Rothko
Just finished this one. I was feeling kind of down lately and have had a heavy heart but the rest of the world has kept turning so I’ve been trying not to let it bring me down by surrounding myself with color.
