"To become artist, to remain artist, is both idea and goal. All conduct is congruent to that purpose. The development of conscience to art is the principle of the whole."

"Art is all, everything: it's an obligation to something other than self. When I'm doing it, I feel wholesome."

"In the manufacture of my art, I use anything and everything which gets the job done without any sentiment or sancity as to medium. Then, too, I have deliberately made a practice of being "visionless"... this is, I go where my preceding art takes me, and never try to redirect the future as to what my art should look like. This is a general credo and foundation for everything I have ever done and stands firm in its solidity as this is written."
