"When I was a young man, art was a lonely thing. No galleries, no collectors, no critics, no money. Yet it was a golden age. For we all had nothing to loose and a vision to gain. Today it is not quite the same.
It is a time of tons of ‘verbage’, activity, consumption.
Which condition is better for the world at large, I will not venture to discuss. But I do know that many of those who are driven to this life are desperately searching for those pockets of silence where we can root and grow. We must all hope we will find them".
Mark Rothko 1903 – 1970
