“In Rowayton I started a series of prints and paintings to express the cycles: Germination, Seed and Rock and Triumph of Spring; these are all related to the struggle for survival of all organic life. The Spawning cycle is related to the struggle for survival in the ocean. These works had obvious symbolic intent but the fact that they came as a result of deep personal involvement saved them from sterility.”

Gabor Peterdi, 1963
