'For me colour is my idiom. Its automatic. I'm not paying 'homage to the square'. It's only the dish I serve my craziness about colour in...All rendering of form, in fact all creative work moves between polarities: intuition and intellect, or possibly between subjectivity and objectivity. Their relative importance continually varies and they more or less always overlap...Colour, in my opinion, behaves like man - in two distinct ways: first in self-realisation and then in the realisation of relationships with others...In other words, one must combine both being an individual and being a member of society' (J. Albers, quoted in G. Alviani (ed.), Josef Albers, Milan 1988 pp. 235-236).
