"More & more do I find that activity of different kinds is essential in the painting - I want it to be as complex as a symphony; to keep the surface as flat as possible, letting it have visual space or eye dance, but no impressionist, cubist or continued space. I would like the surface to be as remote as Vermeer."
(From a statement by Jack Smith in London Magazine 1965)
