Catalogue Note

“I want to express the utmost intensity of the color...At the same time, I would also like to bring out a certain immaterial character that it can have, so that it exists as a sensation and a feeling that will carry nuances not necessarily inherent in the color, which are brought about by juxtaposition.”
Adolph Gottlieb
