Catalogue Note

“Noland’s motifs do not possess the quality of images; they are present solely in an abstract capacity, as means solely of organizing and galvanizing the picture field. Thanks to their centeredness and their symmetry, the discs [...] create a revolving movement that spins out [...] beyond the four sides of the picture to evoke, once again, limitless space, weightlessness, air.” Clement Greenberg, “Louis and Noland,” in: John O’Brian, Ed., Clement Greenberg: The Collected Essays and Criticism, Volume 4, Modernism with a Vengeance, Chicago 1993, p. 98
