- "Color in certain
places has the great value of making the outlines and structural
planes seem more energetic."
- "A time will come
when people will think I am a myth, or rather something the newspapers
have made up."
- "I have a deep respect
and love for these tiny humans, and I hope to convey in my images
a measure of the beauty that exists in all children."
- "I am obsessed with
architecture. It is true, I am restless, trying to find myself as
an architect, and how best to contribute in this world filled with
contradiction, disparity, and inequality, even passion and opportunity."
- "Basically, I no
longer work for anything but the sensation I have while working."
- "If people want
to interpret my work as warnings about too much overpopulation,
disease and mechanization in the future, then that is up to them."
- "We don't have anything
to say except with our pictures."
Gilbert and George
- "Making beautiful
things for everyday use is a wonderful thing to do.. making life
flow more easily.. but art confronts life, allowing it to stop and
perhaps change direction.. they are completely different."
- "Fantasy, abandoned
by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is
the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels."
- "You do most of
your talking about the works and try to say why you think Every
artist is a law to himself. There's no method."
- "I love the idea
that we put in jokes the kids don't get. And that later, when they
grow up and read a few books and go to college and watch the show
again, they can get it on a completely different level."
- "My aim is to be
understood by everyone. I reject the 'depth' that people demand
nowadays, into which you can never descend without a diving bell
crammed with cabbalistic bullshit and intellectual metaphysics.
This expressionistic anarchy has got to stop.. A day will come when
the artist will no longer be this bohemian, puffed-up anarchist
but a healthy man working in clarity within a collectivist society."
- "There's some mysterious
process at work here, which I don't even want to understand."
