quotesY“That abstract art is a higher form of expression than figurative or narrative has been a conviction of many arts professionals for many decades, which was obliquely reinforced by artists from the Eastern Bloc when they started to produce abstract works  against the canon and political threat of the ruling party.”

-Katalin Timar, Unmistakable Sentences
