"My work is intensely personal and alludes to events in my life, sometimes specifically mine. My process is to work directly on the support with no reference except memory or imagination. Unrealistic color is the force that moves the work to imagination and fantasy.
Changes in my work over more than six decades have been driven by an inner need for development rather than dictated by fashion. My work has never fit neatly into the mainstream, nor have I been identified as part of a school."
- Alberta Cifolelli
