Four responses to Kandinsky's colour-form questionaire,1923
"My presentation for the Colour Society of Australia takes a circuitous path through my color theory pedagogy in the classroom and my studio practice. Over the decades teaching color theory I recreated historical models of color science inquiry drawn from research. Bringing together the ideology of Goethe, Chevreul, Neo Impressionism and the Bauhaus into our present moment for added depth in the classroom. This idiosyncratic exploration was influential for my studio practice as well and this presentation will give an overview of the interdependence of color theory history in my artwork and ideas". - Marcia R. Cohen
