Anne Truitt

“In my work as an artist I am accustomed to […] tension […] between my senses, which are natural, and my intuition of an order they both mask and illuminate. When I draw a straight line or conceive of an arrangement of tangible elements all my own, I inevitably impose my own order on matter. I actualize this order, rendering it accessible to my senses. It is not so accessible until actualized.”

Daybook: The Journal of an Artist (1982)
