- "In our time there
are many artists who do something because it is new.. they see their
value and their justification in this newness. They are deceiving
themselves.. novelty is seldom the essential. This has to do with
one thing only.. making a subject better from its intrinsic nature."
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
- "For me, the nude
body is like a raw material.. another artist might use oil or clay.
I love the fact that, en masse, it can be turned into an infinite
number of shapes or abstractions, while the setting I choose.. rural,
urban, indoors or out.. is like a canvas."
- "I sit for two or
three hours and then in 15 minutes I can do a painting, but that's
part of it. You have to get ready and decide to jump up and do it;
you build yourself up psychologically, and so painting has no time
for brush. Brush is boring, you give it and all of a sudden it's
dry, you have to go. Before you cut the thought, you know?."
