"'Village III' is in general about color, but in specific it’s about a certain color blue. Ask somebody to draw blue, to make a drawing of blue. You know you can’t do that. It’s not linear, and it’s not even symbolic, not a concept, and it can’t be registered in any parallel notation, but there is some way, something you can do, to create the definition of what that drawing must do in the mind of the viewer or the maker that is equivalent to that color blue."
