Ad Reinhardt – “The eye is a menace to clear sight.”

Abstract Painting 1957 by Ad Reinhardt

“The more stuff in it, the busier the work of art, the worse it is. More is less. Less is more. The eye is a menace to clear sight. The laying bare of oneself is obscene. Art begins with getting rid of nature.”

Ad Reinhardt
