"I reduced painting to its logical conclusion and exhibited three canvases:

red, blue, and yellow. I affirmed: this is the end of painting."

Rodchenko, 1921, (on the birth of the monochrome?)

Or, The Artist As Stan Laurel

Or, as Maurice Blanchot suggests:

“The disaster ruins everything” and at the same time “The disaster takes care of everything”

(from ‘The Writing of the Disaster’ (Nebraska, 1986), pps.1 and 3)
