"Richard Prince Quotes"

+ I'm surprised at the reaction to the "Nurse" paintings. I’ve never felt that I had to put out work that I actually liked.. just because it’s out there doesn’t mean that I have to stand behind it.

+ By rephotographing a magazine page and then developing the film in a cheap lab, the photos came out very strange. They looked like they could be my photos, but they weren't.

+ I don’t see any difference now between what I collect and what I make. It’s become the same. What I’m collecting will, a lot of times, end up in my work.

+ It would be strange for me to think I’m being ripped off, because that’s what I do! In those days, it was called "pirating." Now they call it "sampling."

+ I think celebrity can be dangerous. The big advantage is that I no longer have to worry about whether or not I can afford to buy that extra paintbrush when I'm in the art supply store. The other advantage is that I can take time to experiment. I can fail a bit more often. I don't have to put out the work that I don't like.

+ Living in New York feels like you're always inside.. inside buildings, inside subways.

+ The subject comes first, the medium second.

+ A lot of it’s experimental, spontaneous. It’s about knocking about in the studio and bumping into things.
