My interest in desperation lies only in that sometimes I find myself having become desperate. Very seldom do I start out that way. I can see of course that, in the abstract, thinking and all activity is rather desperate.
Quote by Willem De Kooning
Whatever an artist's personal feelings are, as soon as an artist fills a certain area...
Art never seems to make me peaceful or pure.
I make pictures and someone comes in and calls it art.
The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is...
The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
Style is a fraud. I always felt the Greeks were hiding behind their columns.
I don't paint to live, I live to paint.
An artist is forced by others to paint out of his own free will.
