"Frank Stella Quotes"


+ I don't know how I got into sculpture. I liked its physicality, that's the only reason.

+ You can't shake your own sensibility. No matter what the concept is, the artist's eye decides when it's right.. which is a notion of sensibility.

+ I don't like a lot of the stuff that goes on in the art world, but it's hard to be old and like what goes on around you.

+ The whole idea of making art is to be open, to be generous, and absorb the viewer and absorb yourself, to let them go into it. I have to go into all those places in order to make it work.

+ The paintings got sculptural because the forms got more complicated. I've learned to weave in and out.

+ I know what I want, but it's physically beyond me now. I can work on what I can handle. It's a playoff between the object and my physical limits.

+ I don't like to say I have given my life to art. I prefer to say art has given me my life.

+ The idea that they know what minimalism is is absurd. I don't know what minimalism is!

+ People say that the paintings are always big because they're striving for effect, but they're also big so that I don't trip over myself, so that I have room to work, and people can come in and be comfortable.

+ Abstract paintings must be as real as those created by the sixteenth century Italians.

+ I hate to say this.. it's made to order. Then, I disorder it a little bit or, I should say, I reorder it. I wouldn't be so presumptuous to claim that I had the ability to disorder it. I wish I did.

+ Time is what you have left.. you just march with it and use it the best you can.
