Uglow Quotes (1932-2000)
British painter known for his meticulously observed paintings of the nude, still life, and portraits.
- "I'm painting an
idea not an ideal. Basically I'm trying to paint a structured painting
full of controlled, and therefore potent, emotion."
- "I'm interested
in color belonging to something, where it takes on a completely
new kind of vibrancy, rather than being what you would call straight
abstract paintings.. And anyway it is so much more exciting trying
to find out about the three dimensions of color and sticking it
down on a two dimensional surface."
always wanted to look into the eyes of the models, but I don't want
the scrutiny of the model on me whilst I'm working, so you will
very rarely find the eyes are looking at me."
