Milton Resnick
American, born Ukraine, 1917–2004

“Resnick attempts to reject all outside influence and all thought while in the process of working. He says that painting for him is like “falling”—every security, every tentativism, every unknown flowing between himself and the work. He feels that every preconceived notion about the final appearance of the work must ultimately destroy it. “

Written by Henry Hopkins on the occasion of the exhibition "Milton Resnick: Selected Large Paintings,” 1971
