#ffaa00 foreground

It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism. There is no such thing as good painting about nothing.

Mark Rothko

#ffaa00 background

The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.
