|Chaucer, drunk as a chamber pot|
-from Lives of the Poets, pg. 56 (Schmidt)
|Francis Bacon has no idea what he's doing.|
"I think that you can make, very much as in abstract painting, involuntary marks on the canvas which may suggest much deeper ways by which you can trap the facts you are obsessed by. If anything ever does work in my case, it works from that moment when consciously I didn't know what I was doing ... It's really a question in my case of being able to set a trap with which one would be able to catch the fact at its most living point."
- Francis Bacon
|Gorky's Garden in Sochi ... unfinished?|
"When something is finished, that means it's dead, doesn't it? I believe in everlastingness. I never finish a painting - I just stop working on it for a while. I like painting because it's something I never come to the end of ... The thing to do is always to keep starting to paint, never finishing painting."
- Arshile Gorky.
