And the long formal work, of which Surrey speaks so readily and which so much delays the appearance of his paintings in their final form, seems to aim only to preserve and, paradoxically, to accentuate the spontaneity of this ambiguous first impression. “Everything is calculated in my images; there is nothing that is left to chance or that relies on accidents”, will say Surrey- Extract: Daigneault, G. (1979). The Expressionism of Philip Surrey. Life of the Arts, 24(96), 69–72.
