Monopinks

Monopinks

Of the place of ‘rose’ within the trinity, Klein’s friend, the art critic Pierre Restany, wrote,"Yves chooses madder rose… Having thus acquired the third element, Yves Klein, can, from now on, present the cosmological trilogy of personal transmutation of colours : ultramarine-blue IKB, gold, and pink… The transfer to monopink in the monochrome trilogy is revealing. Madder rose represents the Holy Spirit before the gold of the Father and the blue of the Son; gold for immateriality and blue for sensibility" 
Pierre Restany, excerpt from Fire at the Heart of the Void, New York, 2005, pp. 24-26
