“I start my painting by placing areas of colors on the canvas; these colors react to one another in relationships that have a specific sense of volume and space. The space I create in this way has a plastic nature; it is experienced as having movement and depth while maintaining a two dimensional integrity.
The internal response I have to this dynamic spatial form as it begins to unfold dictates the compositional results. In the end the painting takes on a sense of form that evokes in us a feeling not unlike one we experience when looking at a beautiful landscape in nature.
Although these paintings are abstractions, they are true to the experience of visual perception. And, it is this that allows us to experience them as being real.” – George Pearlman
