"Paula Rego Quotes"


+ With Pastel you don't have the brush between you and the surface. Your hand is making the picture. It's almost like being a sculptor. You are making the person. It?s very tactile. And lovely because it's very difficult, learning what colours to use together to make shadows and so on? it's wonderful to do, to rub your hand over.

+ Every change is a form of liberation. My mother used to say a change is always good even if it's for the worse.

+ I was very scared and a bit daunted! But to find one's way anywhere one has to find one's door, just like, Alice; you see. You take too much of one thing and you get too big, then you take too much of another and you get too small. You've got to find your own way into things..

+ Even at art school they (the illustrations from Dante's inferno) could still send shivers through me. I've never understood why "illustration" is used dismissively in the art world.

+ When a child does a drawing and calls it "Mummy", for the child that IS Mummy. To us it looks like a stick, a round ball, but to the child that really is Mummy. It is the same with me.

+ I've needed an impulse from within, a lot of emotional energy to do this stuff, and a kind of desire. It's a very aggressive thing... It's not an aggression like you're hitting it; it's a sensual aggression, if you like.

+ 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.
