"Of course, realism can be confused with representation. And abstract painting- if not abstracting from representation- is involved mostly with symbolism. It is about something we know, or about some symbolic situation. I don’t make a big deal about this realism thing. It just seems that what I do is not abstract. I am involved with real space, the room itself, real light, and real surface."

- Robert Ryman
