They work from within." , "The strangeness will wear off and I think we will discover the deeper meanings in modern art." , "The painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through." , "The modern artist... is working and expressing an inner world - in other words - expressing the energy, the motion, and other inner forces." , "The modern artist is working with space and time, and expressing his feelings rather than illustrating." ,  …
