the imaginative action regime's origin
"I’m not a symbolist. In other words, these are painting experiences. I don’t decide in advance that I am going to paint a definite experience, but in the act of painting, it becomes a genuine experience for me. It’s not symbolism any more than it’s calligraphy. I’m not painting bridge constructions, skyscrapers or laundry tickets....I don’t paint a given object – a figure or a table; I paint an organization that becomes a painting."
--- Franz Kline (1958)
