John Cage: New River Watercolor Series
In 1988 John Cage produced four series of watercolor paintings at Mountain Lake Workshop at Horton Center. Inspired from his belief in Zen Buddhism, Cage experienced the world by freeing his mind and self from control. He explored the idea of chance to construct his watercolor compositions and used feathers to paint instead of conventional brushes.
