Catalogue Note

"For me, painting is colour. Shape has to be there, of course, because where the colour stops, it makes a shape. That’s unavoidable. But the purpose of art-making, for me, is a certain hunger for colour. Once the colour comes out of the tube, it’s at its most beautiful. So this love for color keeps me painting" (Etel Adnan in conversation with Emily Nathan, in: ‘Etel Adnan on Exhibiting With Gerhard Richter and the Politics of Landscape Painting’, Artnet, 18 January 2017, online).
