  • "I'm not sure what 'coming out right' means. It often means that what you do holds a kind of energy that you wouldn't just put there, that comes about through grace of some sort."
    Jasper Johns
  • "Usually when someone says a thing is too simple, they're saying that certain familiar things aren't there, and they're seeing a couple maybe that are left, which they count as a couple, that's all. But actually there may be those couple of things and several new things to which they aren't paying attention. These may be quite complex."
    Donald Judd
  • "Painting has a nature which is not entirely translatable into verbal language. I think painting is a language, actually. It’s linguistic in a sense, but not in a verbal sense. I think that one wants from painting a sense of life. And I think that is true. One wants to be able to use all of one's facilities in all aspects of one's life."
    Jasper Johns
  • "I didn't want to get into something which is played out and narrow. I want to do as I like, invent my own interests."
    Donald Judd
  • "I have no ideas about what the paintings imply about the world. I don't think that’s a painter's business. He just paints paintings without a conscious reason. I intuitively paint flags."
    Jasper Johns
  • "I don't think anyone now would say that they're painting the state of the culture of America. I think that's too grand and pompous a thing for anybody to claim. You're only dealing with whatever you know, which is a very small part of it and later on it'll look like it has something to do with the period."
    Donald Judd
