- "My best works are
erotic displays of mental confusions.. with intrusions of irrelevant
- "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."
- "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."
- "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."

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."

is not good painting unless it is good in the abstract sense. A

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
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."
- "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."
