Travelling in Blue Stone

If Lee Krasner's Blue Stone were a place, it would be......

Macau is a jumble of cultures and buildings with everything built organically. It seems that city planning was not a priority! It reminds me of Blue Stone because it's a mess of architecture, plant life, hanging laundry, and, now, casinos. The city was built and created as peoples' needs came about; it was automatic, a gesture. I see that as a comparison to Krasner's abstract expressionist work, automatic and gestural.
