“When I expose a painting I would have it say, ‘Here I am: this is my presence, my feeling, myself. Here I stand implacable, proud, alive, naked, unafraid.’” ~ Clyfford Still

“Each painting is an act. The result of action and the fulfilment of action.. ..No painting stops with itself, is complete of itself. It is a continuation of previous paintings and is renewed in successive ones..”~ Clyfford Still
