Mildred Wohl (American/New Orleans, 1906-1977)

I can say that I am obsessed with black because it is all color, and I use it to express the mysteries. Behind that black are secret places, secret things. Their existence is shown by the exhalation of color that sometimes tears through and sometimes is merely a nimbus around the darkness. But no matter how remote, the arcana are always there, good and hopeful in a Stygian world.
— Mildred Wohl
