Catalogue Note

“My work is about color, the changing of colors for dreams and emotions–red, blue, yellow green, purple. And it’s about roundness and the curves of nature. My work gives me hope, enthusiasm, structure. My work is my real diary”

(Niki de Saint Phalle in Exh. Cat., Fondazione Roma Museo, Niki de Saint-Phalle, 2009, pp. 150-151)
