Art, Layout, and two-dimensional Design is between you and the empty space you are tasked to fill. Robert Motherwell, one of, if not the first founders of the abstract expressionist movement said “The game is leaving the canvas no less beautiful than when it was empty.

Coke Is It.

First a philosopher. Before devoting his full time to painting Robert Motherwell was a writer and journalist whose work described a time on the verge of a second World War, and often how the ominous atmosphere was moving the World Of Art, moving into what would become a most controversial and volatile move to what would later be called abstract expressionism. Motherwell had travelled to Paris with his father, and was introduced to modernism, an art form born and displayed as European. Motherwell had these visual memories sharp in his mind when he began to express his own visual opinions, and lay the foundation for what became an All-American form of art. Not unlike, at the same time, a form called Jazz, also rearing its often arrogant, American head in the World of Music and Sound. Motherwell, having invited a number of his European friends and artists into his NYC studio, lived a moment on a Hot Summer Day that well represented the clash of American and European cultures.
The visiting Europeans, who were used to drinking red wine for almost all their beverage desires, were struck by the striking difference in consuming an icy cold, sweet, carbonated Coca Cola, reacted in what could have been described as repulsion. But in his diplomatic and educational way thought to lead them out onto the city street below, where he took them to a nearby vendor, and bought them all a New York hot dog, in a steamed, soft bun, and properly slathered with the brightest yellow, sharp-tanged mustard.
After taking a willing, exploratory, and anticipatory bite, they were unanimously appreciative of the Coca Cola, and immediately understood how it was most appropriate to compliment the unusual American “sandwich.” Most clear in all the revelation, was that red wine would never do.

Robert Motherwell

Cola’s Psychological Contol — Always important in Advertising, Promotion, and Sales was the VISUAL QUALITY in how an organization (Capitalist Institution) presents itself, publicly. Such quality is equally effective in selling a lie, the difference is always in the integrity of the seller, and their motive to pitch whatever (any and all) products.
