"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"When Leon Golub and I came back from Paris, and I saw that we had gotten involved in Vietnam, I realized that the United States had lost its aura and its right to claim how pure we were. We had entered a war when it was uncalled for. And why? It was specious reasoning from Washington as far as I was concerned. I realized how guilty we were as Americans. I felt a responsibility, and that was working on me when I started the ‘War Series.’"
