"Painting, above all, obeys the principles of ecology. One must find the therapeutic points in the undefined expanse of the canvas. And one must put one’s brush on such spots so as to fill the canvas with force and lively interactions." Lee Ufan Jean Fisher, Ed., Selected Writings by Lee Ufan, 1970-96, London 1996, p. 52
The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the background is slightly lighter in the original.
