There are people who don’t respond to color. That’s what painting is. It’s color.
The only thing simple about the past is that it’s not now.
A great painting is a great painting.
If you want to be told what to think, well, I’m not in that business.
There’s something always instinctively visually right about nature. There’s no difference, to my eye, between looking at a great painting and looking at nature. Because painting, when it’s great, has the same immutable rightness, unquestioned rightness, about it.
If you think you know where you’re going to be 10 years from now, that’s where you’re at now. You’re just putting it off.
