"We only move into the 21st century on the foundation of things that have been established long, long ago."
"If I look at some white panels in my studio, I see the white- but I am not conscious of them being white. They react with the wood, the color, the light, and with the wall itself. They become something other than just the color white. That’s the way I think of it. It allows things to be done that ordinarily you couldn’t see."
