Catalogue Note

"Fine art can only be defined as exclusive, negative, absolute and timeless. It is not practical, useful, related, applicable or subservient to anything else. Fine art has its own thought, its own history and tradition, its own reason, its own discipline. It has its own 'integrity' and not someone else's 'integration' with something else." Ad Reinhardt
