Mark Rothko

***************

There is no such thing
as institutional art
that’s about something

***************

The decorative
is the elimination
of varied silence

***************

Antiquity is
a very large confined space
of eternal doom

***************

Human emotions
should hang as close to the floor
as is feasible

***************

Distortion is so
accurate . . . Clarity is
precisely nothing

***************

Museums are a
religious experience
without ecstasy

***************

An abstractionist
must fall back on the concrete
essence of living

***************

The largest unframed
pictures are a danger to
the small observer

***************
