Painting Thoughts

  • If you canʼt be good, be bold. If you canʼt be bold, quit.
  • How to paint?
    Define space. Destroy space. Redefine space. Thatʼs it.
  • I take more paint off a canvas than I leave on.
  • I paint paintings of paintings, thatʼs all.
  • It is impossible to see what I paint.
  • I donʼt try to put thought into the paintings yet they fail if they donʼt provoke thought.
  • The amount of paint on the canvas is not nearly as important as where it is.
  • I want my audience to work as much as I do.
  • I donʼt want to paint like anyone else – why would I?
  • My painting comes from nothing.
