Sight / International Klein Blue


Don't you want to dive in? That was part of the inspiration of Yves Klein the maker of International Klein Blue.

A color he felt so possessed by that he covered everything, anyone, and more in this invented pigmented powder. I have stood at the threshold of his deep blue high pigment art installations and they pull you. You want to reach out and touch it, be part of it. French philosopher Gaston Bachelard, once said it best ‘First there is nothing, then a depth of nothingness, then a profundity of blue.'
