Joel Shapiro on painting

“I have great admiration for abstract painters since it is such a difficult and under appreciated task. I agree it is a totally under investigated form. It requires faith, belief and conviction. It also seems that the public is now so conditioned to a mediated experience that it cannot deal with raw stuff.” ~ Joel Shapiro
