Catalogue Note

"Every time we describe an event, add up a column of figures, or take a photograph of a tree, we create a model: without models we would know nothing about reality which we can neither see nor describe but which we nevertheless conclude exists. We attract negative names to this reality: the un-known, the un-graspable, the infinite, and for thousands of years we have depicted it in terms of absolute images like heaven and hell. With abstract painting we create a better means of approaching what can neither be seen nor understood because abstract painting illustrates with the greatest clarity... with all the means at the disposal of art, 'nothing.'"
