"The idea that painting is merely an arrangement of lines, colors, and forms is boring. Subjective imagery is the area which I have been exploring....I reject the outer world--the appearance of the natural world....The subconscious has been my guiding factor in all my work. I deal with inner feeling"
-- Adolph Gottlieb
