    ‘The notion of ‘destruction as creation’, is very pertinent to the work of Angela de la Cruz, for it is through the quite literal act of destruction that a new language of painting is created, and with that, thensubsequent re-invention of painting’ (K. García-Antón and E. Tan, quoted in, Angela de la Cruz, exh. cat., London, Anthony Wilkinson Gallery, 2001, p. 9)
