“Many of the great accomplishments in art have developed in a period of great spiritual unrest, not at all unlike the present. The struggle itself has usually resulted in the birth of new ideas, in the development of new materials, and new methods, and in the beginning of an upward step in the progress of humanity.” —As quoted in Joan Marter, “Theodore Roszak’s Futuristic Visions,” Drawing vol. IX, no. 1, May-June 1987, 2
“I explore new worlds of three-dimensional form…This is a withdrawal into a subjective, imaginative and almost automatic world of formal invention and discovery.” —Seymour Lipton, in 1949
