Catalogue Note

“Pictorial experience is by its nature tied to the perception of space through the sensation of 'colour' (light) and 'form' (drawing and composition), which induces in the observer the spatial characteristics as well as the formal and chromatic 'physiognomy of the image’.”

Piero Dorazio
quoted in: Marisa Volpi Orlandini, Dorazio, Venice 1977, p. 275
