Catalogue Note

“A painter wants to formulate with or in color. Some painters regard color as concomitant of form, and hence as subordinate. For others, and an ever-increasing proportion, color is the chief medium of their pictorial language. Here color attains autonomy. My paintings represent the second trend. I am particularly interested in the psychic effect, an esthetic experience that is evoked by the interaction of juxtaposed colors.” Josef Albers
