Style and technique of the artist: Abstract Expressionism, Painting, Post Painterly Abstraction, Documenta Kassel,

“I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotion- tragedy, ecstacy, doom, and so on- and the fact that lots of people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I communicate those basic emotions… The people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when I painted them. And if you, as you say, are moved only by their color relationships, then you miss the point!”.
