Chagall's White Core

Adam and Eve..1914

Chagall's White Core

Noting the central white
as creations center..
Adam's White separating
creating us
our name is Eve..
This Tree of Separation
its pain and joy
needs return to
Tree of Transparency 
the White Core
from which we
never departed...

White Crucifixion..1938

The dignity of the artist lies in his duty of keeping awake the sense of wonder in the world. In this long vigil he often has to vary his methods of stimulation; but in this long vigil he is also himself striving against a continual tendency to sleep. (Marc Chagall)

What I mean by 'abstract' is something which comes to life spontaneously through a gamut of contrasts, plastic at the same time as psychic, and pervades both the picture and the eye of the spectator with conceptions of new and unfamiliar elements... (Marc Chagall)

I am a child who is getting on. (Marc Chagall)

Art seems to me to be a state of soul more than anything else. (Marc Chagall)

Color is all. When color is right, form is right. Color is everything, color is vibration like music; everything is vibration. (Marc Chagall)

I have always painted pictures where human love floods my colors. (Marc Chagall)
