Quotations by Author

Hans Hofmann

In nature, light creates the color. In the picture, color creates the light.

It is not the form that dictates the color, but the color that brings out the form.

The whole world, as we experience it visually, comes to us through the mystic realm of color. Our entire being is nourished by it. This mystic quality of color should likewise find expression in a work of art.

When the impulses which stir us to profound emotion are integrated with the medium of expression, every interview of the soul may become art. This is contingent upon mastery of the medium.
