I LOVE SOPOR AETERNUS. ANNA VARNEY IS MY ONLY GODDESS.
They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.
Picasso said, “Good artists copy; great artists steal.” Maybe he only said that because he and Matisse were in a bitchy queen fight for two decades (some called it a boxing match, I call it a conversation in art). But maybe it’s just that the resolution is: art gives birth to new art. There is no chicken or egg. It’s molecular. Cells give birth to cells […] The past undergoes mitosis, becoming the originality of the future.
then reality is fantasy,
and life is art.
