Catalogue Note

"The work of Theodoros Stamos, subtle and sensuous as it is, reveals an attitude towards nature that is closer to true communion. His ideographs capture the moment of totemic affinity with the rock and the mushroom, the crayfish and the seaweed. He redefines the pastoral experience as one of participation with the inner life of the natural phenomenon. One might say that instead of going into the rock, he comes out of it."

Barnett Newman, Exh. Cat., New York, Betty Parsons Gallery, The Ideographic Picture, January 1947
