  • Sponges are the portraits of the readers of my monochromes who, after having travelled in the blue of my paintings, came back totally impregnated in sensibility like the sponges.
  • To paint space, I owe it to myself to go there, to that very space... without illusions or tricks, nor with a plane or a parachute or a rocket ship: the painter of space must go there with his own means, with an independent individual force, in a word, he must be capable of levitation. (1960)
