Hans Hofmann Quote

Creation is dominated by three absolutely different factors: First, nature, which works upon us by its laws; second, the artist, who creates a spiritual contact with nature and his materials; third, the medium of expression through which the artist translates his inner world. Of those three components only one, the medium, is material.


As quoted in Hans Hofmann (1963) by William Chapin Seitz, p. 15
