“Whereas before with the aid of the mirror,
the painter approached the objective world form outside,
gradually peeling off successive skins until he reached
the subjective centre; in abstract form he must
begin with an objective core and build
outwards until he finds a
subjective circumference.” - Victor Pasmore,
What is Abstract Art?The Sunday Times, 1961

"The great architectural
sculpture, which I designed for Peterlee New Town, was a definite outcome of my experience in modifying and enlarging my Maltese farmhouse. Its great thick stone walls, heavy cubic forms and sculptural quality have been re-enacted and transformed into a tensile cantilevered structure in reinforced concrete." (Jasia Reichardt, 'Pasmore in Malta: Some Questions posed by Jasia Reichardt, Art International, 20 March 1972, p.52)

"What, perhaps, is relevant to my new paintings
in Malta is that the close and
constant proximity of the ancient,
mythological and Neolithic past has
reinforced my orientation from the physics
of art to its biological and psychological
content...somehow the process of working
in fluid ink and chalk on large expendable
sheets of paper dispelled inhibitions
and release new energies."
(Jasia Reichardt, 'Pasmore in Malta:
Some Questions posed by Jasia Reichardt,
Art International, 20 March 1972, p.50-53)
