"August Macke Quotes"


+ What I most cherish is the observation of the movement of colors. Only in this have I found the laws of those simultaneous and complementary color contrasts that nourish the actual rhythm of my vision. In this I find the actual essence, an essence which is not born out of an a priori system or theory.

+ I am interested in the creation of space through colour contrasts rather than through simple shading of light and dark.

+ The most important thing for me is the direct observation of nature in its light-filled existence.
