  • Catalogue Essay

    “I want to express the utmost intensity of the color, bring out the quality, make it expressive. At the same time, I would also like to bring out a certain immaterial character that it can have, so that it exists as sensation and a feeling that it will carry nuances not necessarily inherent in the color, which are brought out by juxtaposition.” Adolph Gottlieb
