"Artists, however, in their search for new ideas, forms, and images, have always pushed beyond the inherent limitations of any one medium. Theodore Roszak, though known primarily as a sculptor, never gave up the idea of painting. To his mind, each medium enriched and informed the other, and both, together with drawing, were essential aspects of his creative process...Painting has always been the standard fare of art schools and academics in Europe as well as America. Consider the varied careers of Julio Gonzalez, Alberto Giacometti, David Smith, Louise Bourgeois, and Eva Hesse: each eventually altered the course of modern sculpture, but each began as, or aspired to be, a painter."
