No art is any good unless you can feel how it's put together. By and large it's the eye, the hand and if it's any good, you feel the body. Most of the best stuff seems to be a complete gesture, the totality of the artist's body; you can really lean on it.
I don't like to say I have given my life to art. I prefer to say art has given me my life.
I don't like a lot of the stuff that goes on in the art world, but it's hard to be old and like what goes on around you.
I want to make exalted art. A successful image has pictorial lift. I am looking for whatever is up there.
A sculpture is just a painting cut out and stood up somewhere.
