Susan Pasquarelli




“In such paintings as these one has to recall that many of the great founders of abstract art—Kandinsky and Klee in particular—strenuously sought to bring to painting the resonance and ethereal appeal of the art of music. It is then not a stretch to see some of Pasquarelli’s compositions as a form of arcane—but very beguiling musical notation. Her several untitled works might easily have been labeled andante, con brio, allegretto, or larghetto. We might also recollect what Picasso said of all abstraction, that a poem must not mean, but be.”
