The thing in painting is to find a way to get color down, to float it without bogging the picture down in Surrealism, Cubism, or systems of structure... In the best color painting, structure is nowhere evident, or nowhere self-revealing.
- Kenneth Noland, quoted in the New York Times, August 25 1968
