“art is a long preparation to be innocent in a medium, to be able to love in a medium.”

For the curious ones here is the link to the Sean Scully video – perhaps an idea to get yourself a coffee or wine as this baby is 1 hour 22 mins long.

A few quotes from the interview:

“in a sense certainty equals stupidity”

“the kind of painting I’m interested in resists conceptual understanding and analysis.”

“art is a long preparation to be innocent in a medium, to be able to love in a medium.”

“I work on a painting until it doesn’t need me anymore..”

“work that is made perfectly… and that is perfectly clear and perfectly certain, I don’t care for because I find the implications of that dangerous, in a cultural sense – as a value. I am offended by it as a person.”
