  • "I opened my own gallery, in 1980, which I always thought was the most honest thing you could do. It's like a chef opening his restaurant."
    Ken Done

    Jean Michel Basquiat

  • "I want paint to work as flesh, I know my idea of portraiture came from dissatisfaction with portraits that resembled people. I would wish my portraits to be of the people, not like them. Not having to look at the sitter, being them. As far as I am concerned, the paint is the person. I want it to work for me just as the flesh does."
    Lucian Freud
  • "On the floor I am more at ease. I feel nearer, more a part of the painting, since this way I can walk around it, work from the four sides and literally be in the painting."
    Jackson Pollock
  • "Art prices are determined by the meeting of real or induced scarcity with pure, irrational desire, and nothing is more manipulable than desire."
