"Jeffrey Smart Quotes"


+ I like living in the 20th century.. to me the world has never been more beautiful. I am trying to paint the real world I live in, as beautifully as I can with my own eyes.

+ Painting is a form of incarnation. It is spirit made manifest in the world.

+ I find myself moved by man in his new violent environment. I want to paint this explicitly and beautifully.

+ You might like to ask me, as others have, "Here you are in Italy living in a very comfortable farmhouse surrounded by woods and trees yet you go on painting these factories and things?"
Well Shakespeare had never been to court, never been to Verona, never been to Venice, but he wrote about a way of life that he had never experienced at all, isn't that so? Not that I'm likening myself to Shakespeare.

+ Sometimes I'll drive around for months despair, nothing, nothing, then suddenly I will see something that seizes me.. a shape, a combination of shapes, a play of light or shadows and I send up a prayer because I know I have the germ of a picture.

+ I feel it's just some sort of game if it's just abstract.
