“Painting does not exist independently as a thing, but exists in relationship. The meaning of painting depends not only on the interaction between the paintings and the viewer, but on the painting’s relationship with space (the wall, ceiling, floor, light) and with the viewer. It is the interaction that initiates the experience.” Robert Ryman
