"These passionate [abstract] compositions are not limited to the purely visual celebration of what pleases the eyes. They reach beyond the world of the senses to symbolize the forces that activate life and the physical world with all their overwhelming complexity." from Rudolf Arnheim's essay "What Became of Abstraction?", p. 22, To The Rescue of Art U. of CA Press, 1992.
