- "I am interested
in making art to be experienced and explored by as many individuals
as possible with as many different individual ideas about the given
piece with no final meaning attached. The viewer creates the reality,
the meaning, the conception of the piece."
- "I just wanted to
find out where the boundaries were. I've found out there aren't
any. I wanted to be stopped but no one will stop me."
- "There comes a point
where you see it all as completely empty being a popular artist
to the extent that people who are not necessarily interested in
art know about things or take some little interest. I think that
now for me it's a burden. It's a bit hard to deal with and it wastes
time as well."
- "I prefer every
time a picture composed and painted outdoors. The thing is done
without your knowing it."
- "When I paint, I
paint under the dictate of feeling or sensing, and the outcome all
the time is supposed to say something."
- "No amount of skillful
invention can replace the essential element of imagination."
- "Art prices are
determined by the meeting of real or induced scarcity with pure,
irrational desire, and nothing is more manipulable than desire."
