On observation and reflection

“…I paint very large pictures. I realize that historically the function of painting large pictures is painting something very grandiose and pompous. The reason I paint them, however — I think it applies to other painters I know — is precisely because I went to be very intimate and human. To paint a small picture is to place yourself outside your experience, to look upon an experience as a stereopticon view a reducing glass. However you paint larger picture, you are in it. It isn’t something you command.”

— Mark Rothko
