Portrait of Gene Davis, Washington DC
Copyright 1978, Rosalind Solomon
 

...look at the painting in terms of individual colors. In other words, instead of simply glancing at the work, select a specific color such as yellow or a lime green, and take the time to see how it operates across the painting. Approached this way, something happens, I can't explain it. But one must enter the painting through the door of a single color. And then, you can understand what my painting is all about.

--Gene Davis in an interview with Donald Wall, in Donald Wall, ed., Gene Davis
(New York, Praeger Publishers, 1975) p.31
