A painting revives in the company of a susceptible observer, in whose mind the canvas grows and unfurls.
However, the reaction of the spectator can also be lethal. It is therefore a risky and merciless business to send a picture out into the world.
How often it is impaired by the eyes of the unfeeling and the cruelty of the impotent who could extend their affliction universally!

Quote from Mark Rothko


'silence in color'
