75 Reasons to Live: Leslie Shows on Arthur Dove

Artist Leslie Shows on Arthur Dove’s Silver Ball No. 2 (1930). “I love the literalness of using metallic silver paint to depict a silver ball … yet he also uses this silver paint in the atmosphere around the silver ball, so the silver depicts not only silver but depicts the luminousness of moonlight, luminousness of the atmosphere.” [Jennifer Sonderby’s 75 Reasons talk on Leslie is here.]
