"EQUILIBRIUM of tensions makes harmony. The forces creating this balance which is harmony are rhythmical. This is the essence of nature, of life. These are the elements with which I work. The composition of such elements becomes a challenge to thinking and feeling. They provoke search, desire and hope. This is the creation of a civilization and the measure of contentment comes from the degree to which these are experienced." Roy Gussow, 1953
