Organization, 1933-1936, oil on canvas painting by Arshile Gorky (1904-1948); American abstract expressionist painter of Armenian ethnicity / National Gallery of Art, Wash. DC
Abstraction allows man to see with his mind what he cannot physically see with his eyes... Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an explosion into unknown areas.
-- Arshile Gorky
