I don’t know what makes Helen Frankenthaler’s work so beautiful or how she did it. But I guess she did…

 “A really good picture looks as if it’s happened at once. It’s an immediate image. For my own work…I think very often it takes ten of those over-labored efforts to produce one really beautiful wrist motion that is synchronized with your head and heart, and you have it.”

“There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules. That is what invention is about.”
