Learn to see and to feel life. Cultivate imagination.
Because there are still marvels in the world. Life is a mystery and always will be.
Art is to create and not to revive. To revive: leave that to the historians, who are looking backward.
There is no difference between science and art when it comes to creativeness, productiveness, to come to conclusions and to formulations.
Abstraction is real, probably more real than nature. I prefer to see with closed eyes.
Simultaneous contrast is not just a curious optical phenomenon — it is the very heart of painting. Repeated experiments with adjacent colors will show that any ground subtracts its own hue from the colors which it carries and therefore influences.
In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is — as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art.
If one says "red" —- the name of a color — and there are fifty people listening, it can be expected that there will be fifty reds in their minds. And one can be sure that all these reds will be very different.
Independent of harmony rules, any color "goes" or "works" with any other color, presupposing that their quantities are appropriate.
Whether something "has color" or not is as hard to define verbally as are such questions as, "What is music?" or "What is musical?"
The aim of our studies is to prove that color is the most relative means of artistic expression.
I've handled colour as a man should behave. You may conclude that I consider ethics and aesthetics as one.
The role of art for me is the visualization of attitude, of the human attitude towards life, towards the world.
Art problems are problems of human relationship.
