One's art goes as far and as deep as one's love goes.
It's a moment that I'm after, a fleeting moment, but not a frozen moment.
To be interested solely in technique would be a very superficial thing to me.
I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
It's all in how you arrange the thing... the careful balance of the design is the motion.
At 18 I began painting steadily fulltime and at age 20 had my first New York show at the Macbeth Gallery.
I can't work completely out of my imagination. I must put my foot in a bit of truth; and then I can fly free.
To have all your life's work and to have them along the wall, it's like walking in with no clothes on. It's terrible.
If you clean it up, get analytical, all the subtle joy and emotion you felt in the first place goes flying out the window.
I don't really have studios. I wander around around people's attics, out in fields, in cellars, anyplace I find that invites me.
