Catalogue Note

“In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is – as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art.... Practical exercises demonstrate through color deception (illusion) the relativity and instability of color. And experience teaches that in visual perception there is a discrepancy between physical fact and psychic effect” (Josef Albers cited in: Josef Albers and Nicholas Fox Weber, Interaction of Color, London 2006, pp. 1-2).
