"When I went to undergraduate school I studied to be a painter and I was taught mostly by GI-bill artists who studied with Hoffman or other modernists like Léger. But Hoffman was the primary theorist for compositional ideas in painting. That’s what I was taught, but I always had this perverse kind of version of it. And it was already kind of perversely being done by the early pop people like Rauschenberg- obviously still painting in a Hoffman manner."
