About the artist: Dick Marconi (b. 1934) is an American artist whose fascination with color began at the age of twelve when an accident left him blind and partially deaf in one ear. Dick gradually regained vision in one eye, first discerning only shades of black, white, and gray. When he began to see again, colors were more vibrant, and saturated than he recalled. Using his artistic passion for color, and his knowledge of chemistry, Marconi pioneered a technique that melds a variety of paints and solvents to make colors move, fuse, flow, and retract as if they were placed on the canvas by a magical force.
