Sunday Random Quote

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

A quote from Karel Appel that was written on the wall of the KMSKA in Antwerp. Here’s my best effort to a translation:

I never try to ‘make’ a painting,
it’s a scream, it’s naked,
it’s like a child, it’s like a caged tiger.
I am the surgeon of space
and paint human spaces.
My painting tube is like a rocket
that writes in its own space.

Karel Appel 1957

On Sunday I don’t like to put a lot of effort into blogging, so I’ve decided to make this random quote day. The quotes can be by or about artists but also other remarkable and interesting quotes. And I start with this one:

Man is the Only Animal that Blushes. Or needs to.
Mark Twain
