"Vision and Sensibility"
Pure color field and Greenbergian formalism impressed upon me "the primacy of the visual dynamics of form and color", the crucial importance of paint itself as a material, and the aesthetic purity.
In this arena, painting could not validly exist as the illustration of some settled knowledge, but as a process whereby the conscious and unconscious mind might be explored, and the dreams and visions expressed, interpreted.
- a penchant for lyrical, meditative atmosphere
- more or less musical arrangement of element
- aura of subtle poetry.
