The understanding of form and colour

The predisposition to carve is not enough, there must be a positive living and moving towards an ideal. The understanding of form and colour in the abstract is an essential of carving or painting; but it is not simply the desire to avoid naturalism in the carving that leads to an abstract work. I feel that the conception itself, the quality of thought that is embodied, must be abstract - an impersonal vision individualised in the particular medium

Barbara Hepworth, sculptrice britannique (1936)
