"I can’t use the word ‘abstraction’. I’m a very literal-minded person. I know my paintings. I know this isn’t a real figure, because it doesn’t have any arms. At one point it had hands in the pockets without arms attached. And I thought, 'Well, are you doing a figure or are you doing this presence? You’re doing the presence.' So I let go of whatever I needed to, and I kept what I wanted. "

- Susan Rothenberg
