"Ken Done Quotes"


+ It seems acceptable if a gallery or institution makes money off the artist, but less acceptable that the artist makes it himself.

+ 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.

+ I like working at home. And I think, if you're a very disciplined worker, which I am, you can work at home.

+ If I make a painting, it should be seen for what it's set out to do too. A lot of the things that I do, it's not all art. Some of it's design, some of it's illustration, some of it's graphics, some of it's concept, some of it's business and some of it, hopefully, is art.

+ Art shouldn't be something that you go quietly into an art gallery and dip your forelock and say 'I have to be very quiet, I'm in here amongst the art.' It's here, art's everywhere. It's how you use your eyes. It's about the enjoyment of visual things. And it's certainly not for any one group of people.

+ I've always thought that there shouldn't be any limit to the things that are well designed. And I think that people who consider that art should only be kept for art galleries and doesn't have a role in public life, I think that's too narrow.

+ In the times in which we live it is far too restricting to say that art can only be found in art galleries and not touch people's everyday lives.. I want to use any means that are necessary to communicate to people what I feel about things. There are no rules. And if there are rules, then you may as well break them.

+ I think we should have a new flag, whether its my design or not it doesn't matter but simply that it is a symbol of the maturity that the country had arrived at.

+ If I make a little birthday card that somebody's going to buy for a dollar, it's not the Sistine Chapel, but I hope it's a really good birthday card.

+ Wherever you are in the world, there's always something about the Australian light. There's something about the sharpness of it, something about the clarity of it, something about the colours of Australia. And, hopefully, something optimistic about Australian painting too.
