Catalogue Note

“There is no painting less obscure than Riopelle’s, and no painting that so truly captures the spirit of natural plentitude. Because he understands that the body is what sees, that there can be no seeing without motion, he is able to carry himself across the greatest distances – and come to a place of nearness and intimacy, where each thing has been set free to be what it is” (Paul Auster cited in: Exh. Cat., New York, Pierre Matisse Gallery, Jean-Paul Riopelle: Paintings from 1974 and Pastels from 1975, New York 1975, p. 5).
