My paintings are founded upon visualization rather than upon vision, and upon organization of elements rather than upon reproduction of a presumption. The spectator looking at a painting of mine must deal with the orchestration of broken colors. My paintings are a chaos of color, an intermingling of colors; they slant, halt, spiral, jump, and highlight. They are used to attract and delineate — the same patch of color in one case will identify and in another will merely form atmosphere. LeRoy Neiman
