"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"Gumby is a kind of metaphor for how I work. He actually goes into the book, goes into a biography or historical book, interacts with real figures from the past, and he becomes part of it. He brings it to another direction. And I tend to do that in my work."
- Raymond Pettibon
