"If you can remove judgments, you can have acceptance. And it’s really the highest state that art can take you to. So if I make a painting like Play-Doh (1995–2008), it’s really to represent one of those moments: you look at it and you just cannot make an aesthetic judgment about it. There is just a sense of acceptance."

-Jeff Koons
