"You’re confronted, when you are looking at a painting where you don’t have specific images or a figure or a landscape, with something that you are challenged to resolve and unify in some way, because there is a unity there. I keep harping on this; that’s what has to work. It has to resolve in secret, almost. There has to be some kind of unification of shapes and colors And it just may be in a very surprising way."
