Catalogue Note

"The sense of unease we feel when we look at Guston’s painting is that we have no idea that we must now make a leap into this Abstract emotion; we look for the painting in what we think is its reality – on the canvas. Yet the penetrating thought, the unbearable creative pressure in the Abstract Experience reveals itself constantly as a unified emotion…” (Morton Feldman, “After Modernism”, Art in America, 1971)
