"Beyond reality I felt there must be another realm to explore. I needed some symbol broader and more encompassing than human figures within actual environments. I experimented with symbols that grew naturally into the ovoid. Pure abstraction never satisfied me completely. I needed a contact with all that was and is. The ovoid has been an understandable symbol and a living part of life and cultures. It not only symbolizes life but also death and rebirth. I can use it in any context and it works emotionally, visually and abstractly. As a design element it can give meaning to an otherwise lifeless composition." -Clarence Holbrook Carter, Gimpel & Weitzenhoffer Ltd., New York, 1982
