“Only half the story is true. The rest is necessary.”
John Yau

“You should understand that I did not want you to read a painting. I/ wanted you to bathe in it before words domesticated the experience,/ and you turned to such stand-bys as "illumination" and "transcendent"/ to describe what happened to you. Painting should not be sentenced to/ sentences.”
John Yau, Further Adventures in Monochrome

“You think you got something big to say? Something momentous? Or is it what you had to memorize in order to escape the men with lightning in their eyes? ”
