Patrick Heron, Tate St Ives

"Whatever one is painting is the record of a moment.  I believe painting exists precisely in order to relate out subjective experience, our feelings to our objective setting.

In painting merely to observe is to subscribe to the heresy of realism, and merely to project a rhythm is to subscribe to the opposite heresy of non-figuration.  Great painting lies between the two and performs the function of both." Patrick Heron 1955
