“In the many pastels that Mitchell did in 1991…the drawings are a ceaseless whirlwind of harsh and tender lines, both visceral and visual. For her, art wasn’t confined to looking; it wasn’t about transcendence or revelation, but about the nature of being in the world. That is why in these last works ecstasy and premonition embrace in every ethereal cloud, in every tangled and twisting line, in every clash of red and blue. That is why her lines and colors hug and collide, and why the light seems both velvety and unsympathetic.”
John Yau in Exh. Cat., New York, Cheim & Read, Joan Mitchell: Works on Paper 1956-1992, 2007, n.p.
