"What is a picture? The picture is a force field, an arena where the author's energies meet, melted, poured into the color's motion, received from universe's richness, guided into the capillaries of the viewer's soul." (Otto Piene 1959, quote from: Künstler. Kritisches Lexikon der Gegenwartskunst, edition 13, p. 2.
