“...intended to integrate in such a way as to relate directly to the viewer's intuitive level of response. Without denying the intellect's pervasive influence in respect to so-called intuition, I feel there are those receptors within that are best tapped via a direct visual experience--an experience devoid of traditional artistic devices such as sign, symbol, ambiguity, irony, or metaphor.” ~ Cornelia Breitenbach
