“Each line is now the actual experience with its own innate history. It does not illustrate – it is the sensation of its own realisation… To paint involves a certain crisis, or at least a crucial moment of sensation or release; and by crisis it should by no means be limited to a morbid state, but could just as well be one ecstatic impulse…”
