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
I don't paint to live, I live to paint.
The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time.
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.
The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is...
I make pictures and someone comes in and calls it art.
Style is a fraud. I always felt the Greeks were hiding behind their columns.
An artist is forced by others to paint out of his own free will.
