The strangeness will wear off and I think we will discover the deeper meanings in modern art.
I continue to get further away from the usual painter's tools such as easel, palette, brushes, etc.
The modern artist is working with space and time, and expressing his feelings rather than illustrating.
I don't work from drawings. I don't make sketches and drawings and color sketches into a final painting.
I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.
The modern artist... is working and expressing an inner world - in other words - expressing the energy, the motion, and other inner forces.
It doesn't make much difference how the paint is put on as long as something has been said. Technique is just a means of arriving at a statement.
Today painters do not have to go to a subject matter outside of themselves. Most modern painters work from a different source. They work from within.
I'm very representational some of the time, and a little all of the time. But when you're painting out of your unconscious, figures are bound to emerge.
It is only when I lose contact with the painting that the result is a mess. Otherwise there is pure harmony, an easy give and take, and the painting comes out well.
