  • A good painting never stops giving of itself.
  • Art upsets; science reassures.
  • Form and colour do not merge, there is simultaneity.
  • I believe my picture is only finished when the original idea is completely extinguished.
  • I have found painting to be a means of hanging up my ideas. This enables me to change them and avoid any fixed idea.
  • If a painting doesn't disquiet, what is it?
  • The painting is complete when the idea is obliterated.

I had thought the original quote of this was more like: "-when the idea is obliterated (transferred) from the mind to the painting." Although I cannot now provide that source!
