Description

“The first person that pops into my head is de Kooning. He was so fluid, in the sense that he seems so comfortable incorporating the figure, and then losing the figure—he’s certainly someone that I’ve thought a lot about over the years. Then there’s Baselitz. I’m thinking here of the early ’80s—there’s a brutal quality to these works that I love. I could go on about this, but the idea of inverting the painting—it’s such a stupid idea, but he did it. I love it when an idea sounds really awful on paper but succeeds in the flesh.”
