  • "My best works are erotic displays of mental confusions.. with intrusions of irrelevant information."
    Marlene Dumas
  • "Being an artist isn't just about making nice things, or people patting you on the back; it's some kind of communication, a message."
    Tracey Emin
  • "The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration."
    Frida Kahlo
  • "It would start with a color, a form, and it begins dictating to me what's needed in terms of color as well as form."
    Lee Krasner
  • "You should keep on painting no matter how difficult it is, because this is all part of experience, and the more experience you have, the better it is.. unless it kills you, and then you know you have gone too far."
    Alice Neel
  • "Objective painting is not good painting unless it is good in the abstract sense. A hill or tree cannot make a good painting just because it is a hill or tree. It is lines and colors put together so that they may say something."
    Georgia O'Keeffe
  • "My favorite themes are power games and hierarchies. I awlays want to turn things on their heads, to upset the established order, to change heroines and idiots. If the story is "given" I take liberties with it to make it conform to my own experiences, and to be outrageous."
    Paula Rego
  • "It was only after I had been out of the art school that I actually copied a small Seurat, and I copied it in order to follow his thought, because if you do copy an artist, and you have a close feeling for him, in fact that you need to know more about his work, there is no better way than actually to copy, because you get very close indeed to how somebody thinks."
    Bridget Riley
  • "I felt a tremendous affinity with Van Gogh's deep feeling for the things he painted and how he exaggerated the colors of sky, chairs, faces, to bring them to almost more than life."
    Susan Rothenberg
  • "De Kooning is my main man, really, because he just did everything you can do with paint. He reversed it, dripped it, scraped it. But I want to hold on to a certain amount of reality."
    Jenny Saville
  • "Someone once interviewed me and brought up the question of death, and I totally denied it. I'm not obsessed with death, and yet, when I started thinking about it, I realized that I actually was. It's one of those mysteries of life.. its terrifying and grotesque."
    Cindy Sherman
