In our present times, mass or collective production has entered our economics, our politics, even our religion, so that some nations have substituted the collective idea for God. This in my time, is the danger. There is great tension in the world, tension toward a breaking point, and people are unhappy and confused. At such a time it seems natural and good for me to ask myself these questions. What do I believe in? What must I fight for and what must I fight against?” Aah! and yet, when I paint, and I let my emotions out in those colors, it’s the confused mind that tends to be the clearest and creative!!
