"It was with the utmost reluctance that I found the figure could not serve my purposes. But a time came when none of us could use the figure without mutilating it."
"The progression of a painter's work as it travels in time from point to point, will be toward clarity.. toward the elimination of all obstacles between the painter and the idea.. and the idea and the observer.. To achieve this clarity is inevitably to be understood."
"Art to me is an anecdote of the spirit, and the only means of making concrete the purpose of its varied quickness and stillness."
~Marcus Rothkowitz (Mark Rothko)
