"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"The white on the dark ground sometimes made blue, so you would have a kind of blue halo- but there was no real blue pigment involved. It was just the white and the dark gray that caused that. I was aware of that, and it all became part of the composition."
- Robert Ryman
