"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"I’m always allergic to problem-solving because I just think it’s so Puritan. And maybe that’s a cultural thing for me. I’ve come to understand and internalize the spectator’s appraisal of the work. And one of the things that I’m ambivalent about, but don’t totally discard, is the fact that the work might seem a lot more constructed and pre-planned than it actually is."
