Lot Essay

“You know the gumball machine is in a way the most surreal objects in the world, it promises things inside, it’s like gift wrapped elegance. All it supplies is something to chew on, but look at it with its brightest kind of colors plus the fact you put in the dirtiest, grimiest kind of copper money and out comes a beautiful magenta or yellow ball full of sweet promise” Barnett Newman (as quoted by W. Thiebaud)
