"For me, the paintings are not depictions of space, although you could possibly view them as that. They become some other form of space. They’re not virtual space, because a painting is a built thing, obviously. I subscribe to that Frank Stella notion that what you see is what you see."

Sarah Morris, quoted in Taylor Dafoe, "Sarah Morris Explains Why Nothing Is Off Limits in Her New Paintings and Films," Artnet News, 23 May 2019, online
