Catalogue Note

"Basically my interest is to communicate and to have a medium that’s as expressive in its complexity as is a human being. It’s an inexhaustible problem, and also an inexhaustible interest. What could really be more interesting, or in the end more ecstatic than in those rare moments when you see another person look at something you’ve made and realize that they got it exactly, that your heart jumped to their heart, with nothing in between?"

Robert Motherwell
